Keynote: J Nurs Res Pract
Statement of the Problem: Historically obstetric emergencies can be taxing for all and important messages and documentation can be lost due to the stress and anxiety. Colour coded proformas offer an opportunity for people under these circumstances to easily manage the document process whilst being prompted on the next action in management.
Study Design: This study uses a descriptive cross sectional design. This study aims to look at previous records and documents and compared the new process since March 2019, when coded proformas colours were introduced in the units.
A survey will be sent out to gather quantitative information on how people appreciate these proformas after training was given. This research will be illuminated as a presentation to expose how simple to use tools can enhance patient care and safety while creating easy ways to reduce time waste and reduce Health care related costs.
