  • Causa
    Intermittently when a large number of patient exams are retrieved from the his/ris system, the exams when displayed on the wdr1 are not properly displayed. if the user continues to attempt to select one of the exams when this issue has occurred, the system will update the screen and in doing so, potentially select a different exam or patient. if the user does not notice this change and continues to perform the exam, the images will be placed in the incorrect patient file.

    GE Healthcare are providing work around instructions for users to follow when using the WDR1 based systems for exams. Users should pay close attention to the patient exam/entry selected from the worklist prior to selecting the Start Exam button to ensure the system did not update and select an incorrect exam. GE is providing a software upgrade as a permanent fix.
