hi to all,
i was wondering if any of you have a pre-procedural checklist used for in-patients who are going for endoscopies/colonoscopies?
we are currently using the pre-op checklist for surgical procedures and is more for patients under-going general anesthesia.half of the checklist is marked n/a and it seems like a waste of everyone's time because the mandatory cxr and ekg for a 35 year old patient going to the or is inappropiate for a patient going for endoscopy.
i suggested having a separate checklist for gi lab and then i was given the task of developing one (lucky me). i took what was necessary from out standard pre-op checklist but wanted to get some more ideas.
thank you in advance for any help you can provide!!
