RTasks E-MAR Improved for PRN E-Charting
We've made a small but significant enhancement to how data is presented to staff charting a PRN medication!
But First, a Review of RTasks E-MAR Capabilities
The RTasks E-MAR allows care providers to document medication administrations in real time at the point of care. This isn't just for the regularly scheduled medication administrations, it goes for PRN (aka "As Needed") medications as well. Some key features of the RTasks E-MAR's PRN medication administration tools:
PRN Med Administration Has Been Improved!
The RTasks E-MAR has been improved to provide better documentation in a specific situation: when a resident has the same medication regularly scheduled AND available as a PRN. In this situation, users administering this medication on a PRN basis may need to know how many times this medication has been provided that same day, to make sure the medication is not administered if a limit is reached. This information was previously available, but now staff encountering this situation will be presented with this information immediately when starting the medication pass:
This is just one small adjustment to make sure staff are getting the best available data exactly when they need it to help them do their jobs as effectively as possible!
