STOP Act notice now available in Spanish!Comments: 0 comments
Licensees are invited to download the notice, which can be used to inform patients about the limits. The idea for this resource originated with a request from a medical practice that contacted NCMB to ask if the Board had prepared anything to help licensees explain the new prescribing limits to patients.
Find English and Spanish versions of the notice at www.ncmedboard.org/safeopioids under “NC's new opioids law - the STOP Act”. NOTE: Licensees who practice in settings that provide care on demand (such as emergency rooms) are urged to seek legal advice before posting the notice to ensure compliance with federal EMTALA laws.
