To prevent incorrect COVID-19 alerts in Epic’s Storyboard, be sure to select the right COVID-19 PCR order set. This also keeps our patients from boarding the ED too early awaiting their COVID-19 test results.
To clarify this process, COVID-19 PCR Order Sets have been renamed.
- For patients NOT clinically suspected of COVID-19:
- COVID-19 Admit Screen (no isolation required)
- For patients or HM staff who ARE suspected of COVID-19:
- COVID-19 Suspect – Patient (triggers the required isolation alert)
- COVID-19 Suspect – Staff (triggers the required isolation alert)
- Immediately notify admitting hospitalist and nursing team of any COVID-19 suspected patients.
- All admits must have a COVID-19 test as soon as possible.
