  • These need to be integrated into a cross check and then implemented or rejected or whatever.
  1. if ventilated any time (#18) then ETT (#22) or trach (#23) should be marked
  1. if extubated unplanned (#28) or planned (#29) is marked then ETT (#22) should be marked
  2. if ETT is inserted in ICU (#40) then ETT present (#22) should be marked
  3. if previous date has no ETT (#22) and today date has ETT(#22) then new insertion (#40) should be marked
  4. if previous date has ETT (#22) and today date has no ETT (#22) then previous date of the extubated unplanned (#28) or planned (#29) should have marked
  5. if previous date has ETT(#22) and today date has ETT(#22) and new insertion (#40) are marked then today date of extubated unplanned (#28) or planned (#29) should be marked

  • Explanation: These are cross checks that were done on paper forms; could probably be deleted outright, no longer relevant.

Clear, dark markings

Staff must use dark pencil or black pen on the form and fill in bubble completely. Light pencil marks, colored ink, dot in a bubble or half filled bubbles do not scan well.

Top of every page

Collector must write: the serial, page number, unit, first date on form AND addressograph on front of EACH PAGE


Numbers in the date boxes must be consecutive

Always at least one circle marked

There should be at least one circle filled-up on each date.

  • at least one TISS item


  • NO TISS28 items applicable to TODAY line 1 on form

Correcting mistakes

If a mistake, cross out (X) the erroneous circle(s), shade the correct circle(s) and put an X on the square box at the end of the row where the correction was done.

If all entries in a row are correct, do not put any mark on the square box at the end of the row.

Keep the form number clean

The bottom right corner must be kept clean and unmarked (ie. no lines or characters overwriting the number). The number is by Teleform (the form scanning tool) to identify the form and if it is unreadable, the form will not import right.
