ATLANTA, GA – Presenting to her local emergency room with lightheadedness, headache, and fatigue, 72-year-old Molly Medds is perplexed by questions about her current medications.  “Isn’t it all in the computer?” she asks, while searching through her pocketbook to find any helpful clues.  She stumbled upon hospital discharge instructions from her last admission, but unfortunately, the med list was copied and pasted, reading, “See Epic medication list.”

Slowly coming back to her, Mrs. Medds excitedly reports her medication list to the ER team:

One blue pill, two yellow ones, and a handful of reds!
One blue pill, two yellow ones, and a handful of reds!

In the meantime, the ER team completed her physical exam, labs, CXR, EKG, and head CT in under 10 minutes, and admits her to Medicine.  Intern Chloe B. Cloud takes care of Mrs. Medds admission, including medication orders to “Take the Rainbow.”
