Efficiency in record keeping - anesthetic logs
Veterinary facilities can maintain the anesthetic/surgical log by compiling patient anesthetic monitoring charts in chronological order. This can be paper copies of the anesthetic monitoring charts in a binder, scanned copies in an electronic file, or electronic copies in a file that can easily be accessed and printed. A copy of the anesthetic monitoring chart should also be kept in the patient’s individual medical record. By doing this, the veterinary facility will not need to also keep a separate anesthetic/surgical log.
This will be effective as of August 1, 2020.
