Note for specific treatment time

I'd like it if my doctors had the ability to add a note to a treatment at a specific time. For example, if we have a patient that is being hospitalized overnight after surgery on a fentanyl CRI at 4mcg/kg/hr, I want there to be a note at a midnight (3mcg/kg/hr) and 4 am (2mcg/kg/hr) to decrease the fentanyl to a specific dosage without making another line on the smartflow sheet.

    I realize that I can add notes under instructions; however, Randall's suggestion would be much better with less room for error. We also change instructions throughout the day on many line items and want to avoid having a paragraph of instructions to read through each time.

    Hi Randall,

    Thank you very much for submitting an idea! Of course, the ability to add notes for specific treatment time would be beneficial for you. As a workaround, we would recommend you to point out such things in the "Instructions" field.

    This way you could aware all of your staff that a fluid should be decreased to a specific dosage at a certain time.

    Once the "Instructions" field is filled out - every time someone clicks cells regarding that treatment a little window with instructions gently reminds that the dosage should be decreased at a certain time: 


     We hope this helps!
