Our health system uses EPIC, and we have a nurse-driven vaccine protocol for inpatients who qualify for a pneumococcal vaccine or flu vaccine. Our current process is that the order generates an entry on the medication administration record in the PRN field. The entry says to give the vaccines "prior to discharge". We've found that most patients don't end up getting vaccinated.
Do any of you have a successful strategy that you can share? We'd love to learn from you.
