One thing, I don’t think scoring, in its entirety, should be done at night. I think the attention to detail should at least be reviewed by someone who hadn’t been up all night and continued to mark things at 7am after a long shift. I think a person should have total flexibility to not score a study if they feel they should pay more attention to something else going on with a patient or whatever.

Another thing,i think, is that the amount of multitasking you give a person isn’t all about weather or not they have an once of work ethic, but their experience/competency level as well. Some newer and or less trained techs might miss something trying to stage REM onset on a patient on Diazepam or something. 😆

Really what I’m saying is that there are so many variables with assigned tasks, QA, type of patients, ect., that its hard to make a general statement.
