We do not currently list our behavioral health patients who are going through evaluation in the emergency department as 1:1 in NEDOCS. Thus far, we have reserved it for ICU level admissions or transfers, where the nurse is often tied to the bedside. Although many of our behavioral health patients do require 1:1 observation, its often a sitter or nursing assistant who is continuously tied to the patient. I am also very interested to see what everyone else is doing with this though.
