Does anyone else out there complete questions or assessments in the ED that are then used as part of the admission database and not repeated? If so, can you describe what the topics are (like allergies, current meds) and how this works in a paper system? Thanks!

We have the actual floor assessment forms in the ER and if we have time, we try to at least begin the assessment form. Sometimes they go to the floor completed, except for height weight, vitals. I must say that when i am on the floor, it is a huge help to have some of this information already documented.

It is not required in our ER. We do it as a courtesy to the floor if we have time. We use the same forms that they us. I usually complete them on the patient's I admit to ICU

We have a float M/S "Admissions" nurse 7-3 and 3-11 that completes admission paperwork (a rather large packet of forms). ER Nurses do not fill out admission paperwork for floors but will occasionally fill out a 1-page Unit report for ICU and CCU if there is time.
