    I'm not a nurse yet but our entire hospital system uses Epic charting...the only things on paper are the appropriate consents and the ppwork that goes to the state...

    We use it were I work (Mom/Baby & SCN). I'v been there 3 years and they were using it before I got there. Let me know if you have questions. I would be happy to help.

    Yup. I like it for Postpartum and NICU, but hate it for L&D.

    Yes, our facility uses it hospital-wide, including L&D/Mother/Baby. It's the only EMR I'm familiar with for L&D, so I have no complaints.

    hi guys, i wanted to ask if you guys can give me some input on the charting..I'm a new grad but been out of school since 2010, the hospital that i am working at right now is using EPIC for the charting. everything was pretty new to me. I'm struggling on my first and 2nd day of oreintation. tomorrow will be my 3rd day. i just wanted to ask you guys if you guys have any idea on the process of the charting. i've noticed that they don't use SOAP, fDAR..these SOAP, fDAR are the only 2 that i am familiar with during school days. to give you guys an idea here's the example given to me as a sample but not the actual. i've been trying to get this on my head hoping i can get a better understanding on how they formulate it. any infor will be a great help.. thanks
