How to add Notes?
Modified on: Wed, 30 Oct, 2019 at 1:19 PM
You can easily add notes, instructions or comments to any flowsheet parameter and treatment cell. Once added, make sure to adjust the highlighting, so these notes are visible to the rest of the staff. There is no character limit for the notes section, so feel free to write as much as you like.
Add Note for the entire parameter
For example, you want to give Ampicillin every time a patient has a fever. Add a note as a reminder that will appear when the technician enters the patient's temperature value.
You can do this by clicking on the parameter name (from the iPad, please make sure you are already in the Editing Mode), add the instructions, set the highlighting color, and click DONE / NEXT button:
Each parameter cell that contains a note is indicated by a gray triangle in the upper right corner. However, you can additionally change the highlighting color to alert another user. We recommend having a color scheme within your hospital so that all users know what each specific color means.
This is how notes appear to technicians as they click on the cell:

NOTE: If you save the flowsheet as a template with any notes made for the entire parameter, they will also be saved for future patients.
