H&P for Your ASC: Considerations for the Ophthalmic Patient with Robert Welch, MSN, NP

July 29, 2014 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET

Today's ophthalmic nursing staff is challenged to help streamline the surgical process for the patient, surgeon, and facility. An important feature of the surgical process is the required preoperative surgical assessments document or History and Physical (H&P). Nursing staff, anesthesia teams and ancillary staff utilize the information found within an H&P to plan for special needs of the patient and to help identify areas of risk throughout the peri-surgical process.

During this webinar, we will be discussing the purpose of the H&P, whom can perform an H&P, the content contained within an H&P. We will also discuss the utilization, indications and overutilization of preoperative laboratory testing for the outpatient ophthalmic patient.

Course Objectives: 1. Understand the purpose of the pre-operation History and Physical. 2. Identify those whom are qualified to perform the pre-operation History and Physical. 3. Identify components of a complete pre-op History and Physical document.

Cost Members - $25, Nonmembers - $45

Expiration date: 12/31/2014

This course will discuss methods for identification and differentiation of TASS and endophthalmitis cases, as well as nursing interventions in caring for these patients. 

Objectives: 1. Describe the difference between endophthalmitis and toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS). 2. Identify the importance of root cause analysis.

As if we all don’t have enough to worry about with the major changes in our healthcare delivery system, now we have to learn a new language if we want to stay in business. This webinar will include information on the rationale for the change, the necessary areas of focus that will be needed before implementation and the effect that this transition will have on each and every organization.

Objectives: 1. Identify the rational for the change from ICD9s to ICD10s. 2. Discuss why this final ruling is so controversial. 3. Describe at least three areas of focus for preparation before implementation can be successful. 4. Discuss the effects on reimbursement with the transition to ICD10s.
