I work full time as an RN in ICU but my second job is nurse educator in a company that provides air-surface medical transportation. It's a new company. We are trying to create a flow sheet as none currently exists! Are there any suggestions as to where to look for examples? Many thanks in advance
I'm assuming you mean some kind of charging program? Patient care documentation?
The standard of care is becoming an electronic record, and it may eventually become required. If you go that route, I encourage you to go to an internet based charting program, NOT a soft-ware based charting program.
The reason I say this is because if you go with an internet based program, you can chart from any computer with internet access and the updates are done by the vendor at the server. If you go with a software based program, then you can only chart from those few computers where the software is installed, and every time a software update is needed, it has to done physically on every computer...it tends to get more expensive.
Additionally, you can often find billing companies that offer a billing-compatible charting program. I have some suggestions, but I don't want to violate any TOS regarding presenting products.
