STEMI ALERT Data Management: Put That Data to Work!

Data Sheet B: Remember, once the STEMI ALERT is over, Data Sheet B goes with the patient. Make sure it’s not left in the ED. It should go to the cath lab or with the transferring EMS agency, etc. Where the patient goes, Data Sheet B goes! Instructions are within the black box.

Data Sheet A and the Provider Checklists: If you are helping with a STEMI ALERT, write comments about the STEMI ALERT on your provider checklist or on Data Sheet A. Data Sheet A and the provider checklists will be collected, placed in an envelope and sent for immediate case review. By helping complete the data sheets and writing comments on your form, you will help improve the process for the next patient. We need to both what could have worked better ...and what worked really well!

Remember: We can’t improve what we don’t measure! Please take those few minutes to complete the data sheets and provide comments!
