Software update.

I have forever struggled with our electronic health record (EHR) software program which was called Cerner. Jeremy will tell you how much I fought with it everyday. I can get angry at things and then rebel against them in a passive aggressive way which I did almost every shift. But I *love* our new software system which is Epic. It’ll take time to get up to speed, but yesterday, I had kind of a slow day patient wise and I got to deep dive into the software and play around do documentation. I have this separate sheet of paper that nurses call a “brain sheet” which I needed to have with Cerner to keep track of medication times or tests or new orders or whatever, but now I realize that I can cut down on the paper-note taking by about half. And I can text the doctors now, so my calls are also diminished significantly. I love it. My job will be easier.
