1.Complete your APS orders as per usual
2.Identify your patient on the respective “CIV/GEN APS Active Patient” list
3.When discharge is imminent (that would be immediately if catheter is placed in an outpatient setting), MOVE your patient from this list to the “Shared Reminder Lists\CIV/GEN APS Telephone Follow Up” list (drag and drop).
