EKG use in the home health

  1. Hi. I would like to know how many of you have your nurses do EKG readings in your home health practice. Also, What diagnosis do you use it with, can you share your pathway, guideline or protocol, and how many of your nurses have leads (all or just a cardiac team ,etc). thanks!

    Have never had a patient who had EKGs done in the home.

    We have a local mobile X ray service in our area who has added on site EKGs to their list of services. It is very handy to have that option available.
