QI qualification question

  1. 0 I work the night shift and find time to audit charts and find orders not properly transcribed, meds not DC'd, lab not notified of orders and so on. I drastically want to improve the facility I work in. Anyway, does the QI nurse have to be an RN and what is the proper job discription of a QI nurse?

    We had one Interim QA/QI nurse who was an LPN.

    What about making an Admission packet for new admits/re-admits, and have a check list attached of what has/has not been done?

    My facility has a Lab book that we list labs that need to be done (twice a week, unless scheduled on a different day, d/t Dr. order),

    My job description is evolving, but includes Infection control, making sure Doc's notified of labs, auditing charts for Diabetics and BGM/insulin/FBS orders, etc.

    Good ideas. I would like to totally overhaul the facility, but I think I'm the only one. State just exited, so there will definitely be some changes...thank goodness.
