Mount Sinai Innovates to Absorb Evacuated Patients
Mount Sinai also gave physicians and their nursing teams access to Mount Sinai's electronic medical record system on a "read only" basis to access lab and imaging results to smooth the care process.
For new clinical information needed in the charts, the NYU doctors and nurses are using hand written notes, the old fashioned way, because most do not know how to use Mount Sinai's Epic electronic health record system, DuPree says.
Most of the transferred patients' records came with the patients during their ambulance transport, in paper format in folders, stashed with the patients either on their transport gurneys or tucked in patients' arms. Langone had no power to fax over patient diagnoses, procedures, and test results, DuPree says.
"There was almost no communication (with Langone) because the communication lines were down," she said.
