Based upon frequency, duration each order has scheduled instances. Each ICU
Flowsheet Braden Assessment due every 12 hours. Or a medication TID.
The nurse completes a form, or administers a medication at that scheduled
How important is it to keep a long term record of these scheduled instances
as they are related to the original order.
e.g. if I had an order A due at 0800,1200, 1600.
We record the administrations 0805, 1210, 1614 Do the administrations need
to be tied back to the orders schedule times - or is that something that
could be purged.
i.e. do I need to record
Order A --> 0800 ---> 0805 Order A --> 1200 ---> 1210 Order A --> 1600 --->
or can I mark the schedule completed (later purge) and simply store the
Order A --> 0805 Order A --> 1210 Order A --> 1614
The latter allows some purging and potentially helps performance.
