MercyAngels 36 Posts Nov 9, 1999 The LDRP unit I work in uses the Watchchild system. Progress hasn't gotten as quickly as anticipated, but it looks hopeful! At first many of the nurses, especially those with less computer experience, grumbled; but, most of the staff have become converts!!! At this time, we do our admission and labor room record in the system, and print the information out on laserjet printers and place that in the chart. The labor record is easy to use with "pop up" boxes for key info, but some nurses find it difficult to keep up the every 15 minute charting per our protocol. Also, when entering sensitive info that clients and their families perhaps don't need to read as it's being typed, nurses have to go to an empty room (a rare event!) or to the nurses' station; this has led to the "monitor hog" situation! Despite the inherent problems with change and adjustment, the system has really improved charting and decreased the amount of time spent on paperwork, freeing us up to spend time doing what we love---taking care of our moms and babies!!!
