ADE Evaluation Algorithm at the Point-of-Care. In the ED each patient was evaluated by a clinical pharmacist and the treating emergency physician independently, and blinded to each other’s evaluations. The ratings were combined while the patient was still in the ED. If there was any disagreement about the rating (i.e., yes/no, yes/uncertain, no/uncertain, etc.), or if either or both of the evaluations were uncertain, the case proceeded to independent adjudication by a committee consisting of a pharmacist and physician not in any other way involved in the study.
