Your info 'One Stop Shop'

This website is where you will find information about the OHS Emergency Department, its function and all manner of useful templates, guidelines, learning materials and proforma's for your work in the ED.

Feel free to get in touch if you want anything else added.  Please be patient, it is being developed all the time

Exhaustive patient clerking is NOT necessary in the Emergency Department. Documentation should be concise, relevant with only relevant negative symptoms and signs recorded.

Medical records are not infrequently required by solicitors and you may be asked to write police or other statements on them a considerable time after you have seen and even forgotten the patient.  This should be borne in mind when documenting notes.
