From the Problem List tab, there is a secondary tab for Reproductive History. Under this tab, you can designate a patient as lactating and/or pregnant. To do this, click the Add button on the right side of the screen.
After clicking the Add button, a dialog box will open that will allow the user to fill out the Reproductive Factors for the patient. There is a drop-down for the Lactation Status.
There is also a drop-down for Pregnancy Status.
Once you make your choices and add any additional information to the Reproductive Factor box, click the Save button to add to the Reproductive History section of the Problem List tab.
The Lactation and Pregnancy Status will now show the current information that was added for the patient, along with any other information that was filled out.
In Inpatient Order Entry, the pharmacist can see the status which will be designated as a P or L at the top right corner of the screen. This would be where they can monitor the patients following under these status’ medications when they see there is a P or L listed.
