Redesigned intravenous fluid order form with more perceived safety and accuracy for after-hours doctors
Intravenous fluid (IVF) is often prescribed by doctors of the treating teams during daytime hours for various indications. At present, the New South Wales (NSW) IVF order form does not include explicit documentation of the indication for prescribing IVF. As a result, the after-hours doctor is often requested to chart further IVF without knowledge of the patient’s condition or the indication for IVF. As many as one in five patients suffer complications from inappropriate IVF prescribing. To overcome these barriers, they developed a revised IVF order form which clearly documents the indication for IVF, the fluid restriction status and comorbidities of the patient.
