I work at a small rural hospital. Most of our nurses complain about the amount of paperwork necessary to admit a patient. I can't help but agree with them. We want to form a committee to help reduce the amount of paperwork needed and still meet all of the JCAHO requirements as well as the CORE Measures. I hear very frequently that they have had members of their families as patients in other hospitals and they don't have nearly the amount of paperwork that we do. I have a GREAT group of nurses and don't want to lose any of them. I realize that they work very hard everyday and we have good patient outcomes. Is there anyone who would be willing to share the paperwork that you do at your facility? If you are looking for something (protocols etc) I would be willing to return the favor. Thank you so much!
