New Medication Orders in Pyxis

For All Nursing and Pharmacy
Effective Tuesday, Dec. 1

Epic will only send new medication orders to Pyxis for medications that are in the Pyxis inventory on the patient’s nursing unit.

  • Orders on the patient’s Pyxis profile will not display if the medication is not stored in the cabinet.
  • Medications on the Pyxis screen that are grayed out indicate that the drug needs to be refilled by pharmacy or is in a failed pocket.
  • Orders already on Pyxis before this change will remain on Pyxis until they are discontinued, or the patient is discharged.

As always, the Epic MAR is your guide to where medications are coming from.
