Daily Dependency data should be entered once per day for patients who are admitted & under the care of the burns team. Dependency records should also be created for each interaction with an out-patient.
Creating a dependency record will generate validation messages for each required field. Only one dependency record per day shopuld be created, any attempt to create a daily dependency for a duplicate date will result in a critical level validation message.
If an Ibid record type is dated before 2014 and there is no linked daily dependency record, a "Manage Historics" data set will be added to the resuscitation fields to enable a user with "Manage Historics" Permissions to fill in missing data. For further information please follow link Historical ICU Admission Data
Linking with iBID Record
Dependency records cannot be created before creating IBID records
It is vital from an information analysis perspective that the Dependency record is correctly linked with the associated iBID record, this is done automatically. When creating a dependency record an Ibid Selection Dialog Box is generated for patients with more than one IBID record.
For Patients with only one IBID record the Dependency record will automatically be linked to the existing iBID Record.
Different fields will be displayed for iBID record types seen as tabs across the top of the Dependency record, for Outpatients, screens relating to Out Patient care will be displayed.
An In Patient, Acute major Injury admission (resus &/or significant inhalation) for instance, will display all available In Patient care fields.
Once the Dependency Record has been created, details of the linked iBID record will be displayed in the Linked iBID Details box at the bottom of the Dependency Header. The Dependency Header will be displayed throughout the dependency record regardless of the dependency tab open.
Status - Choose from drop down list the patients status at the time of the dependency record treatment, I.e In Patient, Ward Attender etc.
Location - Choose from drop down list the location of the patient whilst treatment is received, i.e Hospital Ward, Residence etc.
Bed Number - Choose bed number, ward or other Location for patient whilst treatment is received.
Shift - Choose from drop down list the shift the procedure was carried out.
Off Ward - Choose from drop down list the location the patient received treatment.
Ward Attender for (hrs) - Box to enter the hours the patient has been on the ward.
Linked Ibid Records
Trauma Network ID - Automatically Displays the linked Ibid Record Trauma Network ID once the Ibid Record is selected in the dependency header.
Date of Injury - Displays the date of injury as entered in the selected Ibid Record.
Admission Date - Displays the admission date as entered in the selected Ibid Record.
Dep Days Post Injury - Displays the number of dependency days post injury, calculated from the Admission Date in the Ibid record
The dependency record can be edited up to 24 hours after the record has been created, after that time the Dependency record will be opened in Un-editable mode, click the "Edit" button on the Dependency Tool bar to make an changes after this point.
Please note, the Dependency Scoring and Rehabilitation Scoring fields will not be present for Ibid Outpatient record types
