Quality Assurance Analyzer: "This patient doesn't meet criteria."
Me: "So what do you have to do to get him to meet criteria, order breathing treatments?"
QA Analyzer: "Yes."
Just another example of why RTs get so burned out.
Here's another discussion;
QA Analyzer: "Did you do any breathing treatments on that kid today?"
QA Analyzer: "Oh! If you did I could note him as meeting criteria. Yet otherwise I don't think we can justify the visit."
Me: "So do you want me to lie and chart that I did one?"
QA Analyzer: "Yes." She smiled.
Of course I was joking and I didn't. Yet this is yet another example of why the government setting criteria is ridiculous.
