I work in an oncology ICU/SICU. I am wondering how other units handle "capped care". I am finding that after a familiy meeting where a DNR is obtained and "capping" care is discussed there seems to be confusion from shift to shift or day to day amongst staff as to what we are actually continuing to do or not do.
Is anyone using a standardized policy to help keep everyone on the same page? I thinking of just using a worksheet or something that will be filled out once the "capped care" discussion takes place so there is always a point of reference.
Does anyone have any experience with this?? Please respond! I need to present this to my nurse leader!
