We recently had a school ask us if our program could be used to demonstrate clinic/office skills as well as hospital skills.
In honor of sponsoring the Medical Math Competition at Skills USA this year, we thought we'd post another idea for incorporating math into your Nursing and Health Occupations classroom while using an EHR.
For non-nurses, it may come as a surprise that math is such a big factor in nursing education and nursing in general. But here at EHR Tutor, we understand just how crucial it is for a nurse to be able to determine the correct dosage of a medication or attach the proper amount of fluid in an IV bag.
We know Nurses, Medical Assistants, CNAs and Physician's Assistants never get a break. And when you finally do, there's a chance you'll be eating lunch right after being puked on or heading home to a night of "relaxation" dead tired from a 12 hour shift.
We recently did a webinar on Shared Charting (a feature we recently released on EHR Tutor) and we thought that even the instructors who could not attend might appreciate one of the scenarios we covered.
We were recently talking to one of our schools with a Medical Assisting class and got a great idea for how to use an Academic EHR in a Nursing or Medical Assisting classroom when it comes to injections and vaccines.
Choose a patient to display during class and add a severe egg allergy to that patient's allergy list. Then, add an order for either a Flu or Yellow Fever vaccine.
