Appreciate for the response.
Are you referring to inpatient or outpatient?
If the latter, how are you identifying patients who may come in for hydration or other supportive medications 2 or 3 days after having received their chemotherapy? Does this responsibility fall on the RN caring for the patient?
Thanks for the information.
I suspect that your normal workflow would be for the person emptying the urine to first log into the patient's chart before proceeding? Just looking at the details.
Appreciate the input. We are indeed fortunate to have ancillary staff who assist in many aspects of patient care.
For clarification, all of our patients are indeed ambulatory. We do offer urinals as one method of fall prevention so patients do not have to negotiate tight quarters with an IV pole, bags and pumps. (In the past, the overwhelming majority of patient falls were at the bathroom doors.)
