Often working in faculties as a foot care nurse, you have to document and chart in their electronic medical records. Wouldn't it be nice to saves some trees, be part of the plan of care and to use an assessment in their EMR program? (Ex. diabetic screen, foot diagram, etc). Point click care is one of many electronic medical record programs on the market and often the most commonly found in LTC or retirement homes in the Niagara area.
Point click care has a website which they help to develop these ideas, which is listed below.
Once registered, log in, go to the "all ideas tab" and search, "foot care".
Please add you ideas, comments and VOTE !!
Lets make this foot care assessment and screening become reality.
