Trauma-02: Pain re-assessment of injured patients


Description

Recognizing that pain is undertreated in injured patients, it is important to assess whether a patient is experiencing pain

Numerator

Patients with two or more pain scale values present

Denominator

Patients with injury and pain scale value >0 originating from a 911 request

Rationale

Pain control is an important component of prehospital care

Pseudocode Numerator

eRecord.01 IN
(
SELECT *
FROM eVitals
WHERE
eVitals.27 IS NOT NULL
GROUP BY eRecord.01
HAVING count(*) > 1
)

Pseudocode Denominator

[eSituation.02] = 9922005
AND
[eVitals.27] > 0
WHERE eResponse.05 - Type of Service Requested = 2205001 - 911 Response (Scene)
