My hospital is going live with a new computer program tomorrow. The floors have been computerized for some time, now the OR will be too. Hate to be pessimistic, but I think it will be a fiasco. It's not a user friendly system and you cannot leave the room with the patient until the charting is "cleared" by the computer. We were told that the schedule would be light for the first week until we're all on track with using the system. Yeah, right!!
The schedule tomorrow is busy and we have doctors who whine like little t***y babies any time they have to wait. Anyone here have computerized charting in the OR? How long did it take for the kinks to get worked out?
