Our ED (which currently uses Codonix documentation) is switching to a Meditech-- EDM Client Server sourse. This necessitates the development of screens for the ED nursesb to use to document assessment, treatments, procedure assists, etc
I am currently trying to develop a "Burn Assessment" screen-- more like a burn trauma assessment than a minor-- burn injury
When you are presented with a burn victim--
What do YOU look for--so I can make sure I've included as many choices as possible.
I have: sites involved, thickness, % BSA- (Rule of Nines or Land & Browder), Airway assessment (patent, facial burns, facial swelling, soot), breathing assessment (Clear, stridor, wheezing, decreased) Circulation assessment (normotensive, hypotensive, tachycardic, bradycardic) (these are quick down and dirty rel to the burn pt only-- not the full in depth systems exam that can be found under other main system head-toe assessment), Cause of burn, Urinary output monitoring.
VS and wt are always documented under their own VS screen, IVs the same, meds will be incorporated via the MAR that the doctors use, as is PAIN
Am a missing any red flags that I need to put in so nurses (who don't do alot of trauma/burn victims and many of our staff are new nurses in general)) will be aware of what else they need to monitor...
Any one else using meditech/client server that have these screens developed that I could use as a reference?
