From 19th March Pre-Admission Clinic documentation will be done in the EMR
In preparation for this change training is currently being run for all PAC staff in each PAC. Pictured above are EMR Trainer Vivienne Queen and Dr Dalach O’Deasmhunaigh.
Why have Pre-Admission Clinic (PAC) documentation in the EMR?
- Reduction of duplication of documentation by different craft groups in PAC
- Improved access to PAC information including improved legibility of notes that are currently hand written
- Decreased workload for staff on the day of surgery (e.g. home medications will already have been documented when the patient arrives)
