Discharging a Patient

Always perform a discharge before starting monitoring for a new patient, even if your previous patient
was not admitted. Failure to do so can lead to data being attributed to the wrong patient.
A discharge:
– clears the information in the Patient Demographics window
– erases all patient data (including trend data) from the monitor and Information Center. This
ensures that data from a previous patient are not mixed with data from the new patient.
– resets patient category and paced settings to the settings defined in the default Profile
– resets all monitor and measurement settings as well as the active Screen to the settings defined in
the default Profile
– discharges the patient from the Information Center.
When a patient is discharged from the monitor or from an Information Center, all patient data is
deleted. Make sure that you have printed out any required reports before discharging. Check that a
functioning central printer is available before you use End Case.
To discharge a patient,
Select the patient name field or select the Admit/Dischrge SmartKey to open the
Patient Demographics window and associated pop-up keys.
