Re: Patient Belongings



Drew,

At our program, we will itemize and document the patient valuables while in
flight (if time allows). We are then met in the ED by a patient
representative, who also itemizes, documents, and collects those items to be
placed in a secure location. We usually discuss the items to make sure there
is no discrepancy between the two. There is a special section in the patient
record for valuables/belongings, which we complete, that provides a pseudo
chain of command for the items. I have never (knock on wood) been questioned
about missing items in the six years doing it this way. I think it's pretty
thorough and seems to work for us.
