Articles on updating computer systems in hospitals

As well as the computer admin system, services crucial to front-line work including X-rays and doctor bleep systems have been affected.However, there are no reports of the hack compromising vital systems such as life support machines.

Nursing issues include medication safety, documentation and standards of practice, and EHR efficiency. The work of the Nursing Practice Committee (NPC) of the Missouri Nurses Association (MONA) included identifying areas of interest to direct care nurses.

Details of patient records and appointment schedules have been rendered inaccessible.

NHS Digital said: “At this stage we do not have any evidence that patient data has been accessed.

"This attack was not specifically targeted at the NHS and is affecting organisations from across a range of sectors.

"Our focus is on supporting organisations to manage the incident swiftly and decisively, but we will continue to communicate with NHS colleagues and will share more information as it becomes available." In a statement Theresa May said patient data "is safe".

The hackers are demanding payment of 300 US dollars worth of the online currency Bitcoin, after NHS computers saw a message pop up saying: “Ooops, your files have been encrypted!

” Adding: “Maybe you are looking for a way to recover your files, but do not waste your time.” It demands payment in three days or the price is doubled, and if none is received in seven days the files will be deleted – but there is evidence patient details have been accessed.

In this article, we will describe the experiential-reflective reasoning and action model used to accomplish these objectives; share committee reflections and recommendations for improving both documentation and documentation technology; and conclude by encouraging nurses to consider how they can develop their documentation and informatics skills.

We used an experiential-reflective reasoning model, one that leads to action, to accomplish our purpose.

It is thought about 40 trusts have been affected by the cyber attack.

We currently know of these trusts caught up in the chaos: The attack has also now spread to Scotland, with eight out of 14 health boards affected.

The chaos caused by the National Health Service cyber-attack is expected to continue through the week as hospitals battle to regain control of their computer systems and cope with a backlog of cancel­led operations and appointments.
