    • A.

      Discharge Navigator

    • B.

      Rounding Navigator

    • C.

    • D.

      Admit Navigator

    Correct Answer

Therefore, the Rounding Navigator would be the most appropriate option for updating a patient's orders during their inpatient stay.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. Creating Smart Phrases can indeed save time while charting if you frequently use the same phrases and sentences. Smart Phrases allow you to store commonly used text and insert it with just a few keystrokes, eliminating the need to type the entire phrase every time. This feature is especially helpful for healthcare professionals who need to document similar information repeatedly.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When changing the form of a medication you must

    • A.

      Manually discontinue the original order then enter the new order

    • B.

      Enter a new order and the original order will automatically discontinue

    • C.

      Modify the original order

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Manually discontinue the original order then enter the new order
    Explanation
    When changing the form of a medication, it is necessary to manually discontinue the original order before entering the new order. This ensures that the old order is properly terminated and no longer active in the system. By manually discontinuing the original order, healthcare providers can accurately track and manage medication changes, preventing any confusion or errors that may arise from having multiple active orders for the same medication.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because medication reconciliation is a crucial step in ensuring patient safety during transfers and discharges. It involves comparing the medications a patient was taking before admission with the medications prescribed during their stay to identify any discrepancies, such as omissions, duplications, or dosing errors. By reviewing each medication prior to transfer or discharge, healthcare providers can ensure that the patient's medication list is accurate and up-to-date, reducing the risk of adverse drug events and improving continuity of care.

This means that you are adding new information or making a revision to an existing note without altering the original content. The term "Addendum" implies that the additional information is being appended to the original note, providing a clear and organized way to document any updates or modifications.

This is because the authorizing provider is the clinician who has the authority and responsibility to approve and authorize the order. They are ultimately responsible for the decision and outcome of the order. The other options, such as the clinician who gave the order or the resident who entered the order, may be involved in the process but they are not the ones ultimately responsible for authorizing the order.

This tab provides a comprehensive list of medications and their appropriate doses for pediatric and neonatal patients. It ensures that the healthcare professional selects the correct dose based on the patient's age, weight, and medical condition, promoting safe and effective medication administration. The Preference List, Smart Sets, and Order Entry options may not specifically cater to pediatric and neonatal doses, making the Facility List Tab the most suitable choice.
