My hospital is in the process of building our computer charting system, and the program that we're gonna go live with is the Clinical Care Station from McKesson. Is there anyone in this forum who has built a system with this program from McKesson or at least has some experience in using McKesson?
What are the pros and cons of Mckesson?
What can you say about this system?
I'm just curious because my core team started this week with classes from the McKesson folks on how to use the system, and it seems okay, but I wanna know from other nurses and other folks who are here about your opinion on anything about McKesson's computer charting system.
Looking forward to your responses
Really HORRIBLE....it's slow, error message all the time, had one shift were all free text for over 4 hours was just lost, too many ways to do one simple task like check labs (which can lead to errors), too many redundant pop-up screens.....and I could go on!
For the ER, if WellSoft is still being used....BEST ER charting program ever used! I did travel nursing so have 5 systems under my belt!
Any FYI.....the hospital I quit is already GRAVELY regretting this program!!! They are hemorrhaging money from it!! The floor nurses and lab are having issues as well.
