    Further clarification: The current Date for the Hepatitis VIS is 10/12/2019. Since this is known is there a way to set up so this date auto-populates into the Hepatitis B VIS Date item? The only thing I can think of is a Record Item…then they would only have to click the button and it would populate the date inputted into the record item and this item would have to be updated with each revision of the VIS.

    Hi Marina and CPNUG,
    I am a nurse working in IT as the CPN System Manager. My experience is in adult ICU and Case Management so I wasn’t even aware that the Fenton was purely for pre-term infants. Thank you so much for you reply. We have updated our Fenton to the 2013 versions and have added the WHO Growth Charts Boy/Girl to the Nursery side (from the GE Infobyte). However; the Nursery nurses are stating that the WHO Growth Charts that I just built in CPN (created from GE Infobyte) are not for Newborns and should be used for Pediatric patients only. The infobyte itself states it can be used for Newborns unless I am reading this wrong. Would love some comments regarding this. Can these growth charts be accurately used for Term Newborns? Does anyone else use them? Thanks for your time!!

    Info that is on the GE Infobyte –

    WORLD HEALTH Org (WHO) growth charts
    This infobyte outlines changes with the growth chart configuration that took effect as part of the Centricity Perinatal CPN 6.96 SP2 release. The configuration adds newborn growth charts to the newborn nursery documentation utilizing data sets from the World Health Organization (WHO) Child Growth Standards. The reference curves (data sets) for the WHO Child Growth Standards World Health Organization 2006 were reproduced with permission: WHO child growth standards: length/height for age, weight for age, weight for length, weight for height and body mass index for age: methods and development World Health Organization 2006. Sites who manage their own configuration may use these instructions to modify their configuration.

    We use the Aldrete Score with Recovery/PACU and a simple pain scale for IV, IM and PO pain meds. This may not be of any benefit since the post is old but wanted to post anyway.

    Would you mind emailing me the antepartum screenshots when you have time. I would truly appreciate it.

    in reply to: Fetal Strip Storage #951

    Hi Megan,
    We maintain ours in GE CPN and print them as needed from Archive. If we have downtime the paper strips are scanned into our EMR and we also keep the original strips in our warehouse to be maintained forever. We have very minimal downtime.
    I know it has been a while since you posted but if you have any additional questions please advise.

    in reply to: Calculation of MVU for IUPC #950

    Good Morning,
    Should I be able to see the information Carrie posted by clicking on the MVU Calculation link? I click on it but it just returns me to the same page and I do not see the data. Any assist would be helpful.

    Hi Marina,
    We use the Fenton growth curve (2003) that is available in CPN and with plots greater than 90% LGA and plots less than 10% SGA all else is AGA. I would be interested to know what others are using as well. I am going to read the articles you posted. Thanks for posting them.
