Educational Power Point sent to Nurses related to “Hold Medication x 1 Dose” orders in Power Chart

October 2009



Background
~Background~

  • Hold ‘medication’ with parameters or x 1 dose is acceptable per NMH policy

  • PowerChart does not have the capability for the prescriber to hold one dose of a medication

  • Physicians are currently using the MD to RN communication order to hold 1 dose of medication

  • This can lead to errors as it is not grouped in the Medication section and the MD to RN Communication order stays visible until discontinued


Hold x 1 dose solution
~HOLD x 1 Dose Solution~

  • MD selects an order “Hold Medication x 1 Dose”

  • Free text entry of name of medication to hold

  • Free text entry of when to hold

  • Free text entry for reason to hold

  • Order will go to top of Scheduled medications on the eMAR and Task List

  • RN will chart ‘Not done’ on the medication task of the dose that is held


Hold x 1 dose solution1
~HOLD x 1 Dose Solution~

  • Reason “Hold dose per MD order”

  • Hold Medication x 1 Dose order can then be charted as done and the task and order will go to complete

  • If the medication dose to be held is not on the eMAR yet, the Hold Medication x 1 Dose order should stay on the eMAR / Task List until the medication is charted as ‘not done’
