As of right now...As of tomorrow....look down the road.About 6 months ago I attended a hospital staff meeting about "core measures". Need to order this, make sure patient has this, etc., etc., etc. Main thing for me was preoperative antibiotics. At the time, the goal was 90% success and thus keeping the hospital and other involved in the good graces of Joint Commission and thus (eventually) REIMBURSEMENT from Medicare/Medicaid.A couple months ago, attended yet another staff meeting. Congratulations, we hit our 90% target. Oh, by the way, the new target has been set at 92%. I snidely asked what happens when the target is set at 110%.It is not about patient care, it is about control.JLC
