Meds (scheduled and PRN's)

Labs and x-ray (CBC in AM, PCXR in PACU, etc.)

Note that IV fluids follows Diet. If one writes NPO, then all such patients get maintenance fluids (use the 4-2-1 rule).

Recipe for disaster: writing for non-maintenance fluids without a time limit. E.g., a patient comes in dehydrated because of nausea and vomiting. You write for NS at 150 ml/hour, thinking you are going to change it in the AM. You forget and get called 2 days later because the patient is coding with potaissium of 2.2 Much better to write: NS @ 150 ml/hour x 12 hours then D5 1/2 NS c 20 KCL at 110 ml/hour or whatever maintenance is.)
