Favorite Orders to save for Hospitalists in Hospital Medicine

Here are some of the most commonly used orders used by hospitalists. I save them as my favorites so that it is very easy to order when I need to. They are arranged in alphabetical order. Of course, this is not comprehensive list medications. It is something that can help in improving efficiency. Some of these orders are hospital or health system specific. This is my attempt to help those who want to make their work easy by encouraging them to make favorite orders saved so that this might help on a very busy day. Most EMRs have their own order-sets but these are helpful to order if we need to repeat any of those orders. As we already know that the dosing is different for different patients and so we have to tweak the orders based on the situation and our experience to suit the patient we are treating. These are copied from CERNER. They obviously look different in different EMRs.

The main advantage is that we do not have to search for each order when we need to order a bunch of orders. Just open the group of orders and click quickly and sign.

I will keep updating it as and when I get time.

As you can see I only included the most common orders that we use repeatedly. Some are redundant as they are present in order sets and some are probably not even the choices that you ever use. This is my attempt to give an idea as to how I saved my favorites so that I can find or recall some of these orders when I forget. Hope this page helps someone out there who needs it.
