Welcome my friends to #RNchat! If you're new, welcome! We'll get started momentarily but first: introduce yourselves!

rnchat:

OK, our first topic will be up in a minute. Please add T1, T2, etc. when responding to a topic. #RNchat

TeriRN:

Hi all. Teri, Travel Hospice Nurse now in DC. So glad to be able to join in again. #RNChat

hi Phil, Pam and all - Vernon, critical care in New Orleans #rnchat

T1 Personal Health Records: Do PHR solutions actually lie in open-source iPhone, Android, etc. apps versus proprietary platforms? #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:05

nursechenene:

Hey all. Traci from work at Level I center in Southwest Missouri #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:05

rnchat:

T1 Follow-up: that is, once most people have smart devices, will PHRs just be as common as, say, Contact info? #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:08

nursingpins:

Should be able to access PHR from any source? #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:08

pamsvulcan:

T1 only if they are accessible & the data can be easily transferred across systems #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:09

rnchat:

@nursingpins Yes - being able to access and share via open platforms (securely of course). #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:09

TeriRN:

T1: For home health/hospice RN's and MD's it would be great to have instant access to the info I'm acquiring so MD can make Dx or Tx #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:11

pamsvulcan:

T1 right now those programs are online if they have smartphone interfaces that are easy & secure #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:11

TeriRN:

T1: Most EMR's I've worked with the nite staff & MD would have to wait till I could sync. Nite staff @ disadvantage if I can't sync #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:13

jtknowles007:

T1 I think security may be an issue with PHRs on mobile platforms. If (as RN) my device goes missing, is private data exposed? !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:14

TeriRN:

T1: Ex: had pt in crisis, got new Rx, fam called nite staff, Had no clue what I had done & didn't believe fam Called MD 4 new RX #RNChat

7/30/2010 21:15

nursingpins:

T1 I think it will imp all h. services to have remote access. Will be much easier to get more done - will even encourage by conv. #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:15

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 That's why I always keep my passcoded and change it frequently. #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:15

pamsvulcan:

U2 but what if the patient walked in said 'look here on my phone, here's my health history' #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:16

rnchat:

@jtknowles007 Good point: there would need to be measures & protocols in place (eg: should remote deletion be enabled?) #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:16

nursingpins:

T1 the security will always be an issue - but will be worked out - same questions with early e-commerce #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:17

jtknowles007:

@TeriRN Good point, but what about those who are "forced" to use new tech & aren't comfortable with it and don't follow protocol !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:18

rnchat:

RT @nursingpins: T1 the security will always be an issue - but will be worked out - same questions with early e-commerce #RNchat

nursingpins:

T1 can be made secure - when was the last time PayPal security was breached? (can be done) #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:18

jtknowles007:

T1 Obviously playing devil's advocate here. I would LOVE to have access to PHRs, as well as general med info electronically. #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:21

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 Def prob. Last job RNs still using passcode IT gave them. IT will need to enforce PHR policies to maintain HIPAA Comp #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:21

nursingpins:

T1 seems like authorized identification access may be problem? #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:22

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 That's how we learn and find the probs. Always good 2 have someone play devil's advocate. =) #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:22

TeriRN:

Last job used tokens for auth access. Unfortunately sync was a pain and VERY SLOW. Not good if U need info quickly #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:24

jtknowles007:

@pamsvulcan T1 Now that would be a problem. If u only get half the picture from one source, something important could be missed !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:25

rnchat:

Next topic coming up in a moment! #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:26

pamsvulcan:

T1 having the data/PHR program linked in with a specific health system could link it in when a new chart/encounter is created #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:26

nursingpins:

T1 records could be kept without names - then providers would have to have a code to match info with patient names? #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:27

rnchat:

T2 The Art of Dignity: Healthcare is Technology-intensive. But preserving human dignity is an Art. Tell us about your "artistry". #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:28

TeriRN:

T1: another prob we had was I could access hosp system, but hosp couldn't access hospice system. Prob whem pt went 2 hosp for crisis #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:28

pamsvulcan:

T1 my hospital has a myhealth website & EHR that is used for inpatient & ambulatory visits idk if data can be txfr from PHR to EHR #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:29

TeriRN:

T2: My latest was helping 13yo dying pt make her last wish 2 attend MS grad I went as her med support & 2take care of "just in case" #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:30

nursechenene:

as an OR nurse I witness daily coworkers who will uncover a pt for whatever purpose and not cover them back. Forget there's a person #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:31

TeriRN:

T2: She looked gr8 & dignity upheld as her classmates greeted her & cheered when she received her diploma. Hilite of career so far #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:31

TeriRN:

@nursechenene Oh one of my pet peeves. I also get irritated when I hear the pt called by disease or rm # than their name. #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:33

nursingpins:

T2 thankfully discretion has been part one of med. longest lasting culture - will cont to based on tech prof integrity of provider. #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:33

pamsvulcan:

@TeriRN I hear u - I evenhve to remind family members that patient has a name #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:34

TeriRN:

@pamsvulcan Ouch. That's not good when family calls them by room or disease. #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:35

jtknowles007:

@TeriRN Wow. That would be heartbreaking to hear someone referred to that way. I'll avoid that mistake when clinicals start. !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:37

pamsvulcan:

@TeriRN usually its 'my brother... in room 2 needs such & such' mind u these r 2 bedded rooms somebody's brother is in the next bed #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:38

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 Had a gr8 instructor who instilled respect & dignity in us RNs I've even corrected fellow RNs & LPNs Nicely of course #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:39

jtknowles007:

@TeriRN - You answered my next question...was going to ask if anyone "called out" someone who treated patients that way. !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:41

TeriRN:

@pamsvulcan Had that happen lots. That's when I say "& UR brother is?" then I respond w/ I'll B in to see Mr. Jones as soon as I can #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:41

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 I usually will answer back Ms or Mr So&So needs... If they keep insisting what rm I will say Ms So&So in rm2 #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:42

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 I always try 2 give report by saying Ms So&So who has dementia..... It helps 2 remind other nurses that they R persons #RNChat

Our final topic is coming up! #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:46

Innuendo Alert: Our next topic is important, but I can see where it could go on a Friday night ;) Be good, OK? :-) #RNchat

rnchat:

T3 Sexual Health: SH is as vital as all other kinds. Is Nursing involved in assessing & addressing SH matters as much as it could? #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:48

holisticnurses:

Hi #RNChat folks! Can't join in but wishing you all a great weekend! Looks like great topics as always. RT @RNchat: Our final topic...
7/30/2010 21:48

TeriRN:

T3: No where near enough. I have seen it totally deferred by nurses & MDs. including myself. #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:49

jtknowles007:

@TeriRN T2 - My prev career (photographer) always learned friends & family names, and used them. Always helped make connections !fb #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:49

dorameulman:

#RNchat following the tweets...interesting!
7/30/2010 21:50

TeriRN:

T3: My last 2 pts were in their 40's, sexual health should have been addressed even if tho they R on hospice. Still important. #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:50

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 Pts love it when a nurse remembers their name. Helps make their care seem personal & that someone cares about them #RNChat
7/30/2010 21:51

pamsvulcan:

T3 altenately - we have to convince some pts that their sexual behavior is inappropriate at this time & advances unwanted #RNchat
7/30/2010 21:54

nursingpins:

T3 SH is imp and nurses could/should be invo but due to present stafg ratios-what nur are able to do is VERY limited (priorities #rnchat
7/30/2010 21:56

pamsvulcan:

T3 the closest I may get to adressing SH is on dc instructions for postop Gyn/GynOnc pts detailing vaginal rest #RNchat

Time flies: We'll be wrapping up in a moment. #RNchat

7/30/2010 21:58

jtknowles007:

T3 Does gender play a role in SH discussions? Are men able to council women effectively and vice versa? !fb #RNchat

Shit I missed #RNChat

Nurses need to reclaim control of whats left of the profession before it is too late. #rnchat

pamsvulcan:

T3 though it did come up in convo with two of my new RNs re: postop TAH pts. I reassured them sex was still possible & important #RNchat
7/30/2010 22:00

TeriRN:

@jtknowles007 I think it will depend on the nurse & the pt. But it can be done. #RNChat
