I find admission orders are easier to organize in the new system than when they were done on paper, which often involved going through five sheets trying to remember what goes on what page. In the new system, you can see the orders when you enter them and before you submit them. The orders are thorough, serve as very good reminders and provide options for you to consider that you would not have necessarily thought of on your own.

Last week one of our nurse leaders remarked on how essential the system has become, and wondered how we would have made it through COVID and Accreditation without it.
