Summary This book is about nursing documentation. It addresses the wide range of concerns and practical aspects of this most important, yet often irritating part of nursing practice.
This is a book for nurses who care about what they write. If these are your concerns . . . I'll never get time to finish my nursing notes! Is it legal? Can I use white-out? Can't they make a better form than this? How can I record this amazing family set-up? Weren't computers made for clerks, not nurses? There has to be something wrong with documenting for funding. Who walks down critical pathways? What happens if a home health record gets lost? How can I document my client's spiritual concerns? Will managed care affect what I write? Is there a culturally appropriate way to document? What is charting by exception? How did nurses document before NANDA?
. . . then this book is for you.
