Some situations our customers want to know about ...
If one of my Chemotherapy patients attend the ER or are admitted to a different ward then I want to know so I can consult about appropriate treatment options. The wrong treatment could seriously affect their current regime.
I run a Clinical Trial and what might be considered standard treatment for an unrelated condition could adversely affect the patient's outcome and may affect the trial itself. So I want to know if the patient attends ER or is admitted.
Safeguarding for Children and Adults is so important. There can be a range of warning signs which I want to be aware of. Obvious events like ER attendance are a warning but so are more subtle clues such as multiple appointment cancellations. I want to know so that I can investigate and maybe intervene.
We've had an patient previously treated for MRSA attend the ER sometime later for an unrelated problem. It was more or less by chance that we noticed the information in the patients record or else we may have operated with serious consequences for the patient and the OR. Both the ER and our Infection Control team need to be made aware of patients with an MRSA history.
