Abstract:
It has been demonstrated that pre-admission work-ups on the Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) patients provide a thorough continuity of care that is beneficial to the Patient's safety, emotional and financial state. The purpose of the BMT workup is to ensure that the patient meets all of the necessary criteria and is well prepared to undergo a BMT. The workup process is a time when all the disciplines perform evaluations and conduct a multidisciplinary review. The inclusion criteria are evaluated for appropriateness and safety of the patient to undergo a BMT. Interventions: This preadmission process facilitates nursing care by ensuring: 1. Patients understand the physical, emotional and financial aspects of the treatment 2. All pre-admission diagnostic tests and procedures are performed 3. All prescriptions have been checked and verified by nursing and pharmacy in advance 4. Patient process and flow at admission are improved 5. All investigational protocol requirements have been met 6. No reversed admissions on day of admit The majority for this work up is the responsibility of the BMT nurses. The education process starts with the Family Meeting. The patient and caregivers are presented with the final treatment regimes and a detail time frame of the sequence of events with potential outcomes. At this time for the patient/family can express concerns or ask questions of all the different disciplines. As a result of the pre-admission process, potential problems/issues are detected and resolved. With the criteria list and the pre-BMT admission packet a checklist is completed The ability to complete the tests on the criteria list as an outpatient is cost effective and more satisfying to the patient with one less day as an inpatient. The patient's anxiety on day of admission is decreased due to the knowledge that the tests and procedures are complete with results. This is important for an Oncology Nurse because this process allows an environment for a detailed educational process specific to the exact needs of each patient pre during and post treatment of a BMT. Concerns that were discussed during the preadmission are monitored, and a plan of action placed prior to an emergency situation.
