    Good Morning,

     

    We are reviewing our standards for height measurements for our pediatric patients.  We would love to hear what other sites are doing.

    1. What is the frequency for length/height measurement on your unit?
    2. Does this depend on the age of the patient? Or diagnosis of the patient?
    3. If a patient is >24 months and cannot stand, what is your method for measuring height?

     

    Thank you!
    Sarah
