ALTO-Alternative to Opiate Prescribing in ER

Shovel the Opiates out of Florida. I applaud Manatee Memorial Hospital in Bradenton Florida for implementing the ALTO program in their ER. Using alternatives  to prescribing opiates in their ER has reduced opiate use by 40%. The dynamics of the Opiate Epidemic could be forever changed if the vision of St. Joseph’s Hospital in New Jersey and Manatee Memorial Hospital in Florida was shared by all. More results to follow.
