Reviewed both the blood pressure policy and procedure checklist for hypertension management at my organization. States proper way to take blood pressure, values of blood pressure that would be considered hypotensive and hypertensive. What to do if patient is in a hypertensive crisis including medication administration and follow up and when to contact EMS for emergency treatment. The protocol discussed all the symptoms of an elevated BP. The policy discussed documentation and then follow up with the patient's physician post care.

In the outpatient MRI center, I work at one of the policies is that prior to administering MRI contrast, any patient that has a co-morbidity of high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease or transplant we must check make sure the patient's GFR level is greater than 30. If it is less than 30 then the exam might be cancelled; however, this depends on what the physician is ruling out.
