Top 12 Holes in Nursing Documentation, November 29, 2012 by Pat Iyer, @patiyer @avoidmederrors #nurseup #nursefriendly

Top 12 Holes in Nursing Documentation, November 29, 2012 by Pat Iyer, @patiyer @avoidmederrors #nurseup:"Attorneys and expert witnesses review documentation to evaluate how the standard of care was fulfilled. They may ask:
• Did the nurse collect the appropriate assessment data?
• Did he or she identify the problem?
• Did he or she come up with a plan?
• Did he or she carry out the plan?
• Did he or she update the plan when the person’s condition changed?"
