5 History and Physical H&Ps are complete
All patients must have a H&P within 24 hours of admission If an H&P is > 24 hrs but less than 30 days an interval update is acceptable Interval updates must address any and all significant changes – USE THE FORM If > 30 days must have new H&P

6 Pain Assessment Appropriate to the patient’s condition & treatment
Includes: Nature Location Duration Severity Reassessment after intervention (nursing)

7 National Patient Safety Goal Medication Reconciliation
On admission: MD List pre-admission medications on the first (white) page of med recon form; this serves as the medication section of the H&P Reconcile on the third (pink) page – state whether each home med will be continued or not continued Surgical patients admitted to hospital on day of surgery List pre-admission medications on med recon form in clinic Reconcile (pink page) at the time admit med orders are written (PACU) On admission: RN Review home meds with patient, alert MD of any discrepancy Verify the CPOE orders match the reconciled list, alert MD if not consistent

8 National Patient Safety Goal Medication Reconciliation
On Discharge: MD provides instructions for discharge meds on first (white) page RN reviews med recon form and discharge Rx with patient Patient is given white copy of med recon form and pink copy of discharge Rx form

9 Medication Orders Requirements
Write legibly (for non-CPOE) RNs and/or pharmacy must clarify the order, embrace requests for clarification PRN orders require a reason and range clarification Avoid therapeutic duplication of orders Distinguish between types of medication and when to use

10 Medication Orders Write your own orders
Understand the limitation of NP and PA ordering privileges. RNs cannot write orders Verbal orders require RN to write the order RN to read back the order Provider must confirm the accuracy of read back Must be signed off within 48 hours; any physician of the treating team may sign off

11 Restraints Requires a reason which is behavioral
Requires face-to-face evaluation by MD Must be time limited, never more than 24 hours Type of restraint should be specified Use CPOE restraint order set, assures compliance

12 Diagnostic Testing Requirements: Test, side/site,
Clinical condition being studied Any specific instructions e.g. mammogram - palpable right breast mass

13 Informed Consent A discussion of risks and benefits as well as a signed consent is required Consent form promotes compliance Require date and time on the physician signature

14 Sedation & Anesthesia Moderate sedation requires a specific DOP (delineation of privileges) Minimum requirements: Assessment of heart and lungs Airway assessment Family/patient history of anesthesia/sedation complications Plan for Sedation/Anesthesia CRNA’s plan must be approved by anesthesiologist

18 Universal Protocol (Time Out)
Requirements Immediately prior to any surgery or invasive procedure Always includes procedure & patient ID Includes side/site and availability of diagnostic studies or special equipment (if applicable), including implantable items Includes bedside procedures, bronchoscopy, IR procedures

19 Safe Use of Medications
Label all medications on and off the sterile field Drug name, strength & amount Normal saline (even in a basin) and contrast are medications Even if there’s only one medication in the field Many standard kits include pre-labeled syringes

21 National Patient Safety Goal Patient Identification
Requirements Two patient identifiers prior to medication, blood, diagnostic study, procedure, treatment Patient Name – ask them to say their name, if conscious (don’t offer their name and wait for a ‘yes’) Medical Record # (DOB is the second choice in areas without arm bands) Confirm both prior to entering orders

22 National Patient Safety Goal Hand Offs
Requirements Patient handoffs must contain standard elements, including: diagnosis, current condition, what to watch for in next interval of care Opportunity to clarify & ask question Contact information (pgr #) Update who to call

23 Document Critical Results
If a nurse phones you with the critical test results (or Radiology or Laboratory call directly), repeat back the critical result to the caller. If you’re on the unit, document the result in the chart. Document what actions you took based on the critical result. When you document the critical result, date, time and sign your entry.
