Modified on: Mon, 25 Nov, 2019 at 6:07 AM
We understand that there are some days when the clinic may just be overloaded with work or there is a critically ill patient that needs to be admitted for emergency treatment. In such cases, it may not be possible to go through the standard procedure for admitting a patient. The good news is, we have taken this into consideration and you are able to quickly create a patient from the iPad:
1. In the top left corner of your whiteboard click on the + sign, and select Create a Patient option:
2. Enter patient Name, Tap to take a photo of the patient (for easier identification) and select a treatment Template:
NOTE: If no gender option is selected (highlighted in blue), the patient's gender by default will be set to Unknown (U):
3. Click Create.
You can then proceed with your treatment and later fill in the rest of the details, this is done by clicking on the Editing icon > Edit Info.
NOTE: That your Whiteboard, Number of Flowsheets and Treatment begins at will be entered by default. To ensure that the patient is admitted into the right department we recommend choosing the appropriate Whiteboard with your initial patient creation.
Also, entering the Weight of your patient will ensure that it is available for all medications, fluids or parameters that require calculation. For this reason, we suggest entering the weight in the initial patient creation phase if possible.
