We are conducting a national research project exploring the documentation process during resuscitations in the Emergency Department (ED). By “documenting process”, we mean the charting of critical aspects of a resuscitation such as primary/secondary surveys, medication administration, airway management, CPR, etc. This documentation is often completed by a "recording nurse." By "resuscitations," we mean the care given to critically ill or injured patients in the ED. The purposes of this survey are:
-To learn more about current documenting practices during resuscitations in EDs nationwide.
-To learn nurses’, physicians’, and medical scribes' perceptions about documenting directly on an electronic medical record (EMR) compared to documenting on paper (on a flowsheet, trauma record, or equivalent) during resuscitations.
You are being asked to complete an anonymous survey that will take 5 – 7 minutes. Participation is optional. We will not be able to determine the identity of the participants since personal identifying information is not collected and the IP address will not be recorded. There is no significant risk or direct benefit to you in participating in this study. You may derive satisfaction from contributing to a better understanding of medical documentation. This study has been exempted by the Institutional Review Board at Rhode Island Hospital. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Dr. Marleny Franco at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any complaints about this study, or would like more facts about the rules for research studies, or the rights of people who take part in research studies you may contact Patricia E. Houser or Janice Muratori in the Lifespan Office of Research Administration at (401) 444-6246. Thank you for your time.
