Description

How would you feel to have peace of mind following each shift, knowing you had delivered care the way you wanted to AND documented the details that really mattered? The chaos of the work we do can make it difficult to ever feel you are truly on top of all the details. But you try. And you try very hard.  

Rosale Lobo, PhD, RN, MSN, LNC, is determined to help make your tough job a little easier.  She wants to make sure you feel a little more confident in all that you do. Rosale has vast experiences in clinical practice roles, management positions and extensive work as an independent legal nurse consultant with plaintiff attorneys. Her expertise will be evident. She will share best current legal practices so you know the words, phrases, and messages your charting is sending to the ‘reader’.

Getting all the tools necessary to keep pace with charting practices can alleviate many feelings of uncertainty. Proper nursing documentation relies on a series of steps and systems that will personalize your charting. It doesn’t mean longer charting sessions, it means creating a succinct method that demystifies the charting process, while anticipating any legal moves against you. This is one training you can’t afford to miss!
