Here are some of our favorites:
1. Tracking disposable defibrillator pads expiration dates:
You can create a “Medication” called defibrillator pads in “CRASH CART MEDICATIONS” and input the expiration date. Using the Medication manager, you can track ANYTHING with an expiration date and receive a reminder.
2. GLUCOMETER readings:
You can document glucometer values by using the COMMENT section of the form you are using. EX: Create a new equipment piece called “Glucometer” and put it in the room you are using it in. (Most put this in the recovery or Pre-op room.) Put your reading in the comment section. This reading will appear in your survey reports. You can use this format for ANY piece of equipment in your ASC.
3. Creating custom rooms/logbooks
Lets say you want to add a PRE-OP room or MINOR PROCEDURE room to your logbooks. Select “Manage Logbooks” from the home screen on the PC. Select Recovery/Utility
Select ADD and call the room whatever you like. (Pre-op, Minor procedure etc.) The new room is pre-loaded with a patient monitor. Go to the EQUIPMENT icon and add the equipment you want for the new room. All done. The newly created room/logbook will show up on your iPad and survey reports.
