The locking mechanism of a medication is a Smart Flow feature. This feature was implemented to prevent changes in the highlighting accidentally. If the highlighting has not shown up on the Flow Sheet after a medication has been added, the most likely cause is that the "lock" icon was clicked manually before clicking "Done/Save"





When adding a medication from the Web:

  • Click on the "+" next to medication parameter
  • Select the drug you are dispensing from the drop-down menu then click "Add"
  • Enter the dose and choose a frequency to continue every (hours) time from the drop-down menu
  • DO NOT manually click on the lock symbol. Locking will be done automatically once you click "Done"
  • Click "Done"

  • When adding a medication from the iPad:
  • Go into "Edit mode"
  • Tap on "+" beside mediation parameter
  • Select or add a medication to be dispensed from the drop down menu 
  • Enter a dose and choose a frequency to continue every (hours) time from the drop down menu
  • DO NOT manually click on the lock symbol
  • Click "Done"

Following the steps above should then add the medication you require with the proper highlighting times and will automatically lock it to prevent accidental highlighting changes.
