just looking for some assistance on core measures...recently it has been designated to the primary nurse to make the patient a core and follow through on documentation, which is passed on from shift to shift. just trying to figure out the best process improvement so we don't fall out...best way to keep nurses accountable, education, etc. one of our biggest grey areas is scip....it seems that it's constantly debated as to what surgery is a scip and which isn't...and vte with scip...do scds count or does the dr have to specify why the patient doesn't need lovenox/heparin. does anyone have any suggestions?! thanks so much in advance!
