This patch is a follow up to the Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) Graphical User Interface (GUI) v30.B release.
Problem: The provider changed the encounter location while working on the chart for an admitted patient. The location selected was set up in Scheduling to allow the administration of inpatient medications. The provider then selected and Inpatient Medication order and chose the 'Change' action. When the edit of the order was completed, the order was left in the Unit Dose Medications display group, but sent to Pharmacy as a Clinic Medications order. This meant the order disappeared from the Inpatient view of the BCMA Virtual Due List.
Resolution: The interim solution will be to add a hard stop on the change action so that if the location is set to a clinic location, the provider will not be allowed to edit an Inpatient Medication or Infusion order. The long-term solution will be determined by a workgroup.
