NPO stop for patients on blood glucose lowering medications

I propose a EPIC hard stop for entering NPO orders on patients that are on blood glucose lowering medications. It would require a statement that these medications were either appropriately addressed or the service responsible for them was contacted about the diet order change.

I will propose this idea to Executive Committee on 3/20/2019.
