How are centers (or how can we) handle when a patients height and weight are documented on the EPIC timeline of one of our own network hospitals? A referring facility within our network documented on the same timeline for this patient transferred to our facility. Unfortunately these were not re-documented during the encounter for treatment of this patients traumatic injury. Just wondering if we are able to use or not?

You are not to use data from the referring facility here. You must record the first height and weight documented within 24 hours of ED or hospital arrival at your facility.
