– Overdose Management –
Consistent Care Services’ Overdose Management Program engages patients who present to an Emergency Department for chief complaints such as overdose and poisoning. Within 72 hours our nurse will evaluate the patient’s appropriateness for this program. If the overdose is from substances such as heroin, opioids, alcohol, or methamphetamines, then CCS will enroll that patient as an ED Visit Reduction patient and are managed the such. This program intervenes with patients in a timely manner in an attempt to prevent future overdoses or overdose deaths.
