    A bit off the subject here, but I wish they would have computer systems where the MD has to enter in their orders electronically. That way, no problems with handwriting or need for clarifications (i.e. would not let the MD proceed without all proper elements - dosage, frequency, etc. - saving another phone call for nurses). And the process of processing orders would be even faster.

    Intellidot is the most annoying, time consuming, frustrating system! I end up charting my meds on the computer when I get really pissed!

    Many of the dots won't scan. Fellow nurses say they just scan any injection location or any reason theat will take the scan. So, the caret promotes false charting - just for time constraint reasons. Sounds like an PI attorney's dream to me!

    It saddens me to hear all the negative things with Intellidot. We are getting this system at the hospital where I work in the next month or so. I am probably going to work at this hospital for YEARS still and on our busy med-surg unit, we don't need one more thing to slow us down. :icon_roll

    We joke it is a good thing that the hospital has hurricane-proof (unbreakable)windows because one frequently hears, "I'm going to throw this (expletive) thing right out the window!"

    I dont know one single person that actually LIKES the Intellidot... and if you ask me, its setting us up for more error than ever.. The worksheets are a horrible system to depend on. (They get thrown out after 24 hours) Things are always getting missed and nobody is held accountable..
