Hello to all.
I'm a hospice admissions nurse in North Carolina, and sometimes cover a LOT of territory.
I've noticed that time spent during the day going back to the office for a care kit (emergency meds) can REALLY add to my day. Sometimes I'll be at an admisison, and our intake dept will email me about another admission that's close to where I am, but the second admission needs a care kit, and the nearest office of my company is 45 minutes or more away. Our usual process is that care kits are ordered for next day delievery, although with my sort of crazy schedule (11am-9pm) "next day" delievery usually isn't an option...it's 2 days.
Does anyone's company have a way to carry a care kit as part of your car stock? How does your company handle emergency medication availability/ordering for late in the day/evening admissions?
