VPH to Inpatient Transfer Process • VPH patient to ED for treatment visit • Patient remains a VPH patient in Medipac (admission, discharge, transfer system) • This is for insurance purposes • If VPH patient admitted to VUH • Patient must be discharged from VPH • Readmitted to VUH in obs or inpatient status • New case number is generated for patient • Process in place to replay as many orders as possible
VPH to Inpatient Transfer Process • Admitting Liaison starts process by notifying ED charge nurse with this page: “Bed name (MRN): Please notify Primary Nurse to play back order for VPH patient after Admitting Liaison completes the discharge process.” • Admitting Liaison will archive orders in HEO/WIZ. • Once process is completed, Admitting Liaison will notify Charge Nurse that HEO/WIZ orders can be played back
VPH to Inpatient Transfer Process: • All documentation in Order Tracker should be completed prior to the transfer process • When patient is discharged from VPH, all orders that appear in Order Tracker for that VPH case number will no longer be present in Order Tracker • Orders can be viewed in StarPanel under ED Orders (this shows which orders completed, not completed)
VPH to Inpatient Transfer Process: Key Features • All archived orders that are re-played will come across to Order Tracker as new orders • One time Stat orders will not archive and playback because these orders are considered as past orders • If the One time order is not yet completed, re-enter order in HEO/WIZ so that you can document the order as “done” in Order Tracker

IV tPA: High Alert Medication • IV tPA is now a high-alert medication at VUMC which means that staff should follow safety strategies and defined procedures during all steps in the medication use process in order to minimize risk. • Being a High Alert medication means that IV tPA bears a heightened risk of causing significant patient harm when used in error. **Review the Policy: High Alert and Look-Alike Sound-Alike Medications CL 30-06.26 https://mcapps.mc.vanderbilt.edu/E-Manual/Hpolicy.nsf/AllDocs/DA7AB99D84815A4C862577AF00747227

Know the Facts • Domestic Violence is any pattern of behaviors that attempts to control an intimate partner or family member by the use of fear, manipulation, isolation, intimidation, physical, sexual, and/or verbal abuse. • Tennessee consistently remains in the top 10 states for domestic violence related homicides. Currently, we are number 5. • One in four women will experience some form of abuse in her life. • In America, every day three women are murdered by the man who says he loves her (American Bar Association Commission onDomestic Violence). • The sole purpose of domestic violence is power and control. • Typically, this control starts out slowly, and increases over time.
Weaver Domestic Violence Center • Weaver Center is the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee. • We provided 15,753 bednights of shelter last year to 233 women and 187 children fleeing domestic violence. • Staff answered 3,791 calls on our 24-hour crisis line.
How can you help? • Call the YWCA Crisis and Information line at 242.1199 or 1.800.334.4628. • The Crisis and Information Line is available for anyone whether they are in immediate crisis or seeking to offer assistance or support to someone who is in danger. • Call the YWCA crisis line to get support on how to talk to a friend or family member regarding safety planning.
