EMR documentation after brain death

  • 1.  EMR documentation after brain death

    Posted 16 days ago


    Would any of you be willing to discuss how you handle documentation of patient care in the EMR after brain death pronouncement?  We are beginning an Organ Donor Support Team at WVU and were hoping to streamline the documentation process.  Do you create a new chart once the patient is pronounced and the expiration summary is complete?  If you would be willing to discuss, my email is  Thank you.
