Easily Generate PACU Records
The Institute of Medicine and other healthcare organizations have chronicled how a disproportionate number of medical mistakes occur during the transfer of a patient’s care from one healthcare team to another.
A prime example of this is when a patient leaves the OR and is admitted to the PACU. The anesthesia team and OR nurse typically give a rapid verbal report on the patient to the PACU nurse, who is simultaneously applying monitors and orienting the patient to the PACU. Needless to say, in this often hectic environment, the PACU nurse may not hear a critical piece of information.
One Medical Passport solves this potentially serious problem with its own proprietary PACU records. Each PACU record has been designed by PACU nurses for PACU nurses. Numerous PACU records have been designed, and each record automatically takes all of a patient’s Medical Passport information, including current medications, allergies and past medical history, and incorporates it into a PACU record that follows a natural progression from PREOP > INTRAOP > PACU ADMISSION > PACU STAY > PACU DISCHARGE.
Simplify Risk Management Reports
One Medical Passport’s Risk Management function is a comprehensive reporting system that allows anesthesiologists and nursing staff to quickly report incidents using a customized template that you choose. Once an incident is reported, your risk management staff can review the information and enter their risk management report. In addition to tracking new incidents, the risk manager can sort by date of incident, date reported, name of facility, type of incident, M&M status and incident status. They can also download reports into a Microsoft Excel format.

They have proven to be computer savvy. After speaking with peers at other surgery centers that brought their pre-op program online, it was quickly confirmed that regardless of age, patients see value in going online.—Aaron Johnson, Executive Director, High Pointe Surgery Center, Lake Elmo, MN
