  1. Guys, Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that peds patients receiving racemic epi should be on a cardiac monitor. I can't find any evidence to back me up, though. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated!!
  2. Our institution is now moving to electronic documentation. Could someone share a resource with me that includes proper method of documenting assessment data (not to include the word "normal!!")? Having trouble getting others to change from their current methods. Thanks

    Pediatric Fall Assessment

    We are getting ready to incorporate the "humpty dumpty scale". It's based on the age of the child, their level of anxiety or behavior, and what meds they're on or potentially could be on. I don't know how to attach here, but I could email you a copy.

    Compentency documentation

    I can tell you I had the exact same experience. This is what I did. I made a master list of all competencies that were to be needed. For each competency, there is a skill checklist that accompanies it. Example: for nurses to be competent in urinary catheterization, they must complete the skill checklist for urinary catheterization. The checklist is basically a step by step of the procedure (which I had to either create or update in certain circumstances). It was a huge undertaking, but now that it's done, I'm glad. Hope this helps you.
