Spinal Precautions now ordered via Spinal Precautions Panel
As of June 29, 2021, spinal precautions are ordered exclusively through the Spinal Precautions Panel:
To order, with the patient's chart open, in the "Orders" activity, search for "spinal" and select "Spinal Precautions Panel". Relevant linked patient care orders can be selected within this panel.
To clear spinal precautions, two steps are needed:
Discontinue the order
: In the "Orders" activity, under "Active Orders">>"Precautions & Restraints">>"Spinal Precautions", click "Discontinue".
Document the clearance
: In the "Notes" activity, create a new note and indicate the "Type" as "Spinal Clearance" (search for "spinal") to bring up the Spinal Clearance Documentation SmartText.
Note: Recently cleared precautions can be seen in the "Summary">>"Overview" activity tab.
