Abstract

Reported cases of notifiable sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have increased for the first time since 2006, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the 2014 STD Surveillance Report [1] . As the disease burden increases, the need for patients to receive care compliant with CDC recommendations becomes increasingly important and patients with STD's are frequently seen in the Emergency Department (ED) [2] . A prior study indicates that compliance with CDC standards of care for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), as measured by chart review of documentation in free form and unsupported order entry, is poor [3] .
