Quality and Patient Safety Tips
Restraint Face-to-Face Documentation – A face-to-face note should occur after the patient is placed in the restraint and should describe the behavior warranting continuation or termination of the restraint episode. This must occur within 1 hour of behavioral emergencies (violent restraint/seclusion) application and within 24 hours for non-violent application.

Bladder Scan Algorithm – This is an algorithm created for patients who are unable to void 6 hours post indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) removal. Nurses have been trained on how to use this algorithm and it resides in Clinical Practice Guideline- Prevention of Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections.

Key things to note when a patient is experiencing urinary retention post IUC removal:

  • Intermittent catheterization should ALWAYS be considered prior to reinsertion of the IUC unless contraindicated
  • It is recommended to wait at least 48 hours prior to considering reinsertion of the IUC. If an IUC is reinserted within 24 hours of removal, this will be treated as a continuation from the previous catheter based on NHSN criteria.

Jessica Lee, MD
Medical Director
House Call Service
Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital

“I am so thankful for Harris Health House Call Service. It has been a blessing for my 48 year old quadriplegic son. The staff is amazing. Even when I have a challenging request, I am still treated with respect and dignity. They always try to get my questions answered one way or the other. They continue to assist me with meeting his medical needs. They all work as a team on his case to get things done. Dr. Jessica Lee, along with Theclar Omeh, Sinu Mathew, Moncellia Scott, Donna Stephens and other staff have all had a hand in my son's care. I feel they have all played a part in him having a longer life. This is truly appreciated. Before House Call Service, my son's life and my life were literally a living hell. I had nowhere to turn until you! Thanks one million times.”
