“Findings against Nurses often rely on their documentation”

Course Content

The frustration and anxiety Nurses feel about documentation is recognised. However, in spite of the pressure to maintain exemplary documentation, situations and personal limitations can lead to inadequate reporting. Nowhere is this more evident than in a law case. 

Findings against Nurses often rely on their documentation and findings for Nurses and relieving facilities of liability have also occurred as a result of quality Nurse records. This webinar explores cases highlighting the causes of problems and gives directions for improvement.

  • Relate legal principles to assess your own record keeping
