The Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors - Research is showing that the numbers of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are being over prescribed during hospital stays and subsequently on discharge. There are studies published that show there are opportunities for substantial cost savings in relation to PPI prescription if there were some clinical guidelines used across the board nationwide. In addition to the costs, there are also risks for devastating side effects of continued use. There is a need to have a more defined reason for the administration and continuation of PPI’s....   [tags: step therapy, prescription, hospitals]

If one group gets the pump it wants it means that the other groups will not get what they want.
