Computer Training and Access
The majority of our patient documentation is completed electronically. Students must sign the "Confidentiality and Information Security Agreement" as well as show a general understanding of HIPAA compliance in order to receive access to the online documentation system. Computer-based CD ROMs are available for pick-up prior to the clinical start date, one week prior to the first clinical day. Below you will find a description of the process:
A minimum of one week prior to the first clinical day a complete list of students attending the clinical should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include the students' middle initial.
The list of names along with the school they are attending will be sent to our Information Technology Department so that user IDs and passwords can be created.
Computer-based CD ROMs for computer training should be picked up one week prior to the first clinical day and distributed to the students. The students should complete the training exercise along with the practice test at the end prior to hospital orientation.
At orientation the students should return the CD ROMs issued to them, at which time they will receive their login IDs and passwords for computer access. Students who do not return the CD ROM will not receive computer access until the CD is returned. Please note that the CD ROM only provides training on the general navigation of the system.
Student Badge Process for Student Nurses
On the day of Hospital Orientation for the clinical group, the students will be escorted to the Badge and Transportation Office to have their picture taken and receive their Houston Methodist student badge. A badge must be worn at all times while on duty or on the campus of Houston Methodist Hospital.
Please note: Student information turned in after the deadline will result in a delay of the clinical rotation.
