Im working in a hospital where they are trying to find a nursing care delivery model. Part of that, they are trying to redefine the time we check vital signs & I/O in different units in the hospital. this is our frequency:
ICU - V/S every hour & I/O every 2 hour
Telemetry - V/S every 6 hours & I/O every Shift or per MD order
Med surg - V/S every 8 hours & I/O every shift or per MD order
Can you share how it is done in your hospitals.....we are trying to look @ community standards & evidence based practices....
