Health Care Association of Michigan
Documentation is important not only to validate the care that we are providing, but it now supports the reimbursement that we are receiving. In today's world, where everyone seems to be "sue happy," documentation becomes even more important when it is utilized to defend the actions taken by a health care facility. When involved in a lawsuit, the facility's documentation becomes a major source for the facility's defense - and not just nurses notes! Supporting documentation is necessary from all disciplines. Most trainings dealing with this topic are on such a level that only attorneys can understand the content. Your team needs to know how to document defensively! This session will provide simple, common-sense techniques and documentation strategies for all disciplines: nursing, dietary, social services, and activity/ recreation.Expand summary
