Verify Appropriate PPI Use for GERD

You can use a hospital stay to ensure proper use of home PPIs for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Confirm the indication to help uncover unnecessary PPI use...such as stress ulcer prophylaxis mistakenly continued after a hospital stay.

Document when treatment started. Expect GERD to usually be treated with a PPI for 8 weeks. And don't be surprised to see some patients take a PPI twice daily before meals if daily isn't enough.
