flow charts

  1. 0 Hi all
    i was wondering if anyone out there has a flow chart for the admission of labor and delivery patients to triage. It would really be helpful and give me somewhere to start, as I try to make one for my own unit. Thank you very much

    I mean like if you have a35 weeker come to L&D because she is contracting, I want to have a flow chart that tells the nurse that yes she is early so are ctx strong admit to L&D, does she have a UTI admit to triage, has her water broke, admit to L&D. that kind of thing, with the signs and arrows and all.

    Doesn't your unit have a Policies and Procedures book?

    I didn't do OB, but we had CARE MAPS for our patients. Same thing?

    I work at a university medical center, so I don't know if my comments would be useful but don't the doctors make the decision about whether a patient should be admitted or not based on the triage and a period of observation (if appropriate)?

    Yes, I was thinking that as well. That would be entirely up to the care provider, depending upon the pt's individual circumstance. Whether to d/c or admit a pt is not under the RN's purview.
