  • In-Patient Orders

    University of Mississippi Medical Center faculty and residents have collaborated with the subspecialty medical staff and administration of Mississippi Baptist Medical Center to develop Evidence-Based Family Medicine (EBFM) admission protocols/pathways for our top 20 DRG diagnoses.

    EBFM admission protocols now exist for the following conditions:

    • Chest pain
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Acute coronary syndrome
    • Congestive heart failure
    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
    • Asthma
    • Diabetic ketoacidosis
    • Upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleed
    • Lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleed
    • HIV/AIDS
    • Pancreatitis
    • Community-acquired pneumonia
    • Seizures
    • Sickle cell anemia
    • Acute management of stroke
    • Syncope
    • Pediatric asthma
    • Pediatric bronchiolotis
    • Pediatric gastroenteritis
    • Pediatric pneumonia

    These protocols are updated quarterly as new evidence emerges supporting improved clinical methodology. Each resident receives a notebook of admission protocols containing admission orders and the accompanying sentinel article from which the protocols were developed. These protocols may be accessed through UMMC's E- Learning link.
