More About This Textbook


Documentation may be the least favorite part of a nurse's job-but it's also one of the most important aspects. Incomplete or improper documentation poses a huge financial and compliance threat, including citations from state, federal, and Joint Commission surveyors. Plus, nurse managers can legally be held accountable for their nurses' documentation. Improve your staffs' documentation with the handbook Nursing Documentation: Reduce Your Risk of Liability, Second Edition. Written specifically for staff nurses, this easy-to-read and affordable resource helps nurses understand the value of good documentation, and the consequences of not documenting accurately and in a timely fashion. The handbook's case studies illustrate the legal threat nurses face from improper documentation, while the quick tips help them avoid common charting errors and improve their charting skills. The handbook includes a short post-test and certificate of completion, allowing nurses to evaluate their documentation understanding. With this handbook as their guide, your staff will be motivated to a level of excellence that will be reflected in the medical record, resulting in improved overall quality of care at their facility.
