Recently we received a request for an Epic change as a result of a patient safety issue in which a physician’s instruction to give platelets the evening prior to surgery was missed and the platelets were given right away.

As a result, we have restructured how transfuse orders are made, as well as how a nurse sees the order. Please review this tip sheet to see examples. (Note: You will have to log in to the Salem Health intranet as we cannot publically post screenshots of the Epic system).
