As a caregiver, accurate documentation is critical to ensuring the welfare of the client, and that care is being properly managed and optimized. The nursing documentation log (and associated reports) represent the eyes and ears of the caregiver – caregivers are legally-bound to present accurate and truthful accounts of client health status and key events. This webinar will cover the do’s and don’ts of proper nursing documentation, and how you can improve your communication as a nursing professional.
