I agree if you can ask someone else to do the intake that would solve it?
I have one guy who smokes a brand of cigarette that sends me into an asthma epsiode.
I use my inhaler and limit my conact with him. I am the only nurse so my doc has to pick up the slack, but he understands.
Willl your new ofice have a better scheduling system? Do they schedule in a book or on the cpmputer? Sounds like an update is inorder so as not to waste nursing time!!
We use LYTEC computer software to schedule and to communicate
we do an updated schedule two to four times daily.
I am aware the pt is there when the chart is up in the chart holder or the receptionist instant messages me in the computer. She will also IM me if someone is in for allergy shot BP etc.
If your office will not go to computer schduling can you at least make a template for the receptionsist to use that has spaces designated for work ins?
sounds like you are in a Busy office.. are you in family pracitce..
I will mulll this over abit!!
