When you wish to change a patient's medication dose you need to discontinue the old medication, & add a new line for the medication with the new dose.


To discontinue a medication on the WEB simply click "DISCONTINUE" within the medication parameter:


To discontinue a medication on the iPad, click "D/C" within the medication parameter:



You will then be asked to confirm the date & time that you wish to discontinue the medication from:


This discontinued item will be clearly displayed on the flowsheet:


You then add the medication again as a new line item, with the new dosage.

This ensures the medical record remains clear, so you can easily see the current dose & the previous dose:



Think back to when you used paper flowsheets - would you draw over your old dose of 20mg/kg with 10mg/kg? No - you would say STOP, & then start a new medication line.
