The Importance of Writing Proper Nursing Notes for Caregivers- Webinar

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. 

Objectives:

Caring from Afar

Whether you live hundreds of miles away or are just across town in your office, chances are you worry about the safety of an ill or elderly relative or friend at home alone. It's always in the back of your mind: Why isn't mom answering the phone? What if dad fell or had a heart attack and no one knows? What if he turned the stove on and forgot? Will mom wander outside and lose her way?
