Patient safety is one of the paramount priorities in clinical settings. Patient safety is one of many reasons formal clinical documentation improvement programs were developed. The best way to prevent a documentation disaster is by recognizing the most frequent documentation errors and putting procedures in place to prevent them. The top four documentation mistakes are mixed messages, misuse of copy and paste in the electronic health record, incomplete or missing documentation, and misplaced documentation. High-quality patient documentation is crucial for ensuring quality care, continuity of care, and patient safety. Learning from the mistakes of others is effective in changing documentation practice patterns.
