Documenting is at best a useful tool for communication and at worst a necessary evil. It is well-known that documenting is one of the most tedious aspects of bedside nursing. It takes time away from patient care and may be used for (or against) you in court. In this CE module we will learn how to document properly. Proper documentation is an essential for defense against claims and continuity/quality of care in nursing.
