If a paramed is not required, always record vitals on labslip unless they have already been obtained on a previous order. This includes HOS/Blood only orders.
this is in the email superior sent out about lab kit guidelines.
YOU'RE KIDDING, RIGHT ?
an hos only or a blood only or a blood/hos only are exactly what they say they are
and they are each separate services.
when you add vitals to them they become different services.
if you want vitals included you change the order to vitals/hos vitals/blood or vitals/blood/hos and PAY for the inclusion of the vitals.
please people, THINK.
Just because they tell you to do extra for free, it doesn't mean you have to.
make sure you get paid for every thing you do.
if you don't they'll just keep adding freebies to your plate and everybody elses.
