  1. Despite what people think.........there is no abandonment law in Ohio......

    We are going to the faxed report in our hospital to speed things up....and it will be in the P&P, which makes it the floors responsibility.
    We sat on 11 admits in the ER last huh?

    Hi Rick
    Would it be possible to have a copy of your policy and procedure for faxing reports to the admitting floor? or perhaps the worksheet your dept. will be using for the fax information? I would like to have some idea to bring back to our er to discuss.
  4. by   CEN35 me your email addy.........and I will send it...or a work fax number. I don't have access to it just yet, we havent started doing it. I will also tell you what else we are doing to try and relieve some of the back ups. Right now there are 9 things we are working on, to try and speed things up. The faxed report is one of (the first group) of three things we are currently working on!!!
