- Initial dose suggestions at therapy start (by physicians)
- Patient-specific suggestions for the daily adjustment of insulin doses (by doctors or nursing staff)
- Dose calculation for individual insulin administrations (by nurses) based on the prescribed doses, current blood sugar level and meal
This is the therapy regimen recommended by guidelines for in-patients.
To reduce complications during in-patient therapy, a fixed blood glucose target range is aimed for.
For geriatric patients with less restrictive blood glucose target values or if therapy with basal insulin is sufficient (e.g. after newly initiated insulin therapy)
The therapy intensity depends on the health status
or manual prescription in the electronic diabetes chart
- Free prescription of insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs, as well as blood glucose target range
- Correction schemes for short-acting insulins depending on blood glucose
- Dose calculation for nurses with safety functions such as active insulin “on board”
- Clear presentation of “open tasks” for physicians and nurses
- Specially adapted procedures for patients who perform self-management on the ward
- Support of verbal orders and confirmation by doctors
