From Brett Marquard:
Antimicrobial Coated Catheter Used Observation
I recognize you can conform to problem observation, but I am wondering if it makes sense. My initial reaction is this should stand on its own.
Bacterial Isolate Tested for Carbapenemase Observation
same question as above
Blood Collection Location
same as above.
Carbapenemase Test Observation Why is the id forced to NA?. I would expect this to have an id.
Please create value set for CONF:1129-30389. Or remove.
Why is the value NA? What is effectiveTime NA? Do you want to add text to the entry description that this is just to record the test was done, no results are provided. I would think at minimum you would want time…
Do you want to add a STATIC date to NHSNCarbaTestMethod?
Carbapenemase Type Identified Observation –
Why no effectiveTime or id?
Contraindication Type Observation
Spelling of section is off.
Drop conformance to problem observation
The negatoinInd and entryRelationship here is very confusing. I recommend writing out a few sentences here describing what you are trying to say…
Last Physical Overnight Location –
I don’t think the use of Encounter is correct here – encounter/code should be encounter type “last physical overnight’ doesn’t is unclear.. An Act wrapping the encounter would be better…
Other Facility Discharge Encounter
same issues as last physical encounter.
Positive Test for Carbapenemase Observation
Why does this conform to problem observation instead of result? Why is this a standalone template? Did you consider a conforms to the carbapenamase test observation?
Primary C. Difficile Testing Method This Quarter
drop conforms to.
do you want to add a STATIC date?
