Even experienced, competent nurses make mistakes.

Sarah – a solid and respected nurse – had always heard “if you don’t document with detail, you put yourself at legal risk.

But when Sarah started a new job, she was told “writing too much was a waste of time.”

Sarah didn’t question the unit’s process and thought, “I don’t need to worry about charting; the computer takes care of that for me. If I chart what my unit audits for, I can sleep soundly.

Two years later… Sarah is sitting at a deposition table, being sworn in to testify.

“What went wrong,” she wonders. “What am I being accused of? How am I supposed to remember any of this? How can this happen to me, a dedicated healthcare provider?!”

If this can happen to Sarah – it can happen to you!
