No one misunderstood anything. This is a PIP because obviously there was a fall out at some point. I didn't get into much detail in my first post...
All I'm asking is if other ED's do this and if so how is it working for your department? Just trying to get ideas since it doesn't seem to work for us.
I've worked in other ED's and it was the same issue.
We are one of the busiest ED's in the COUNTRY.
We see way too many patients for our department size. We have acquired monitors for overflow spaces. But that component of the strip interpretation is a huge barrier. And yes, of course, we do document... or ... SHOULD document the rhythm.
And the EKG process I'm sure is the same across the board.
