Patient Care Reporting
May 16, 2012

New Service Defined Question – MIEMSS intends to add a service defined question that will require an answer to be validated. This question will show up in addition to any service defined questions you are already using in your service.

This change should go into effect sometime today. This is an effort to educate and encourage providers to comply with Maryland regulations requiring that documentation of patient care be left with Emergency Departments upon transfer of patient care. Note that although “No documentation Left; is a valid selection, this is the behavior that we want to replace with some form of written or printed report so that the ED has documentation of patient care and condition at the handover of that patient.
