Changes in Daily Cares/Safety flowsheet effective Oct. 7, 2015

Two decisions were made at the quarterly CPM workgroup session pertaining to the Daily Cares/Safety flowsheet. These changes are effective Oct. 7, 2015.

The following changes include:

  • The “Activity Type” row will be renamed "Activity Interventions" and the "Patient Position" row will be renamed "Patient's Current Position" to clarify the differences between the two rows. The two-hour documentation required for patients with pressure ulcer risk should be done in the “Patient Position” row.
  • “Supraglottic” will be added to the list of choices for “Oral Suction.” The “Oral Suction” documentation will be added to the “Vent Information” group found on the Vital Signs flowsheet and to the Mechanical Ventilation care plan under “Prevent Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia” intervention.
