If you use a flowsheet orderable item and uncheck the orderable box, can you still use the enter result workflow from the Flowsheet?
- Answer: Prior to v11.2 results could be entered on 'inactive' flowsheet orders without issue, since v11.2 that is no longer the case. The suggested workaround is to enter result from the order/result level and not directly into flowsheet. This will allow the order to appear on the Flowsheet. If you attempt to enter a result into an ‘inactive’ flowsheet order you will receive Request Error Failure message: The system is unable to complete the order request because this item has been inactivated by your system administrator. Additionally, you could leave the Flowsheet order as orderable and educate your staff that any orderable item in the ACI that starts, ends or includes the word Flowsheet should never be ordered from the ACI.
