Allergies will be listed as unknown severity by nursing staff

Nursing and pharmacy will list patient allergies in the EMR. The severity of the allergy cannot be assessed by the nursing and pharmacy staff. Therefore the allergy severity will be listed as “unknown”. This will default to the presumed to be severe for the drug alerting.

Physicians can go and edit the severity based on history and clinical judgement.

Please edit the informant source to physician. This will allow the severity to flow from one admission to the next.
