Guidance for Hospitals Looking to Provide Naloxone Upon Patient Discharge

Providing naloxone can be an effective tool to prevent a fatal overdose, as data indicates that a risk factor for a fatal overdose includes patients discharged from emergency medical care following opioid intoxication or poisoning.
