    Hi Maggie,

    You are so kind and thanks for the quick reply . I am going a just a little nutty this week so I reeeeally appreciate the help. I believe I need a P&P for the clinical staff and the admin staff plus an employee manual. I believe the procedure center P&P is all done thank goodness. I listed what procedures we offer, but some of them don't happen too often. I hope that is exact enough... it my first manual.

    Thanks for any help you can provide! You are too cool for school.

    I will send a few today and then check with you to make sure you are able to open them without any problems. I am not very good and may send some a couple of time if I get distracted here. Also I will send the procedures we do here and that will cover most of yours. If you have any problems just let me know. :wink2: Maggie

    :imbar That is sweet, I wished someone had been there when I did these years ago but I am willing to spare the pain for others. I have sent some so please check to see if you can open them. :typing Most of the information can just be cut and paste to your policy header. Wishing you well, Maggie

    Hello, well, i to am in the same boat. I have been given the task of developing a policy and procedure manual for our pain clinic. Clinic is fairly new so all is needed from A-Z. I as well as the staff would be ever so grateful if anyone can share what you can with me. This is turning into such busy task. Thank you in advance for all that you can help me with. Please email me.
