IV Fluid Intake Doesn’t Automatically Document in Epic

For All Inpatient Nursing (Except HMSL)
Effective Now

IV fluid intake is not automatically documented in Epic to ensure the suggested volume infused is confirmed and accurate. This does not apply to HMSL (see below).

To properly document IV Fluid intake from the Flowsheet activity:

  • In the correct Time column, click the calculator in the medication volume row to view the suggested infused volume. 

  • Modify or accept the suggested infused volume.

    • Click the I&O tip sheet for more details on documenting intake and output.
