Astute Documentation – Avoid Being the Invisible Nurse

Concise documentation offers a clear picture of the progress – or lack of progress – of a patient’s condition.

Learn from several case studies that show how documentation can, in some cases, literally be the difference between life and death.

This was very helpful, I found it annoying though that there were clearly slides that were made available but I was not able to see because it was not made available.
