Most Common Documentation Errors: Throughout a Plan of Care Course
Documentation deficiencies often occur when the physician is focused on a matrix of required elements and loses focus on the underlying purpose of documentation: Quality of Care. The DC is far more likely to comply if they can attach a value with the mandate. This lecture will provide clarity of documentation, as well as most common errors made, so the practitioner can have clarity of thought in implementing correct record keeping on Monday morning. Documentation effectively forces the physician to articulate who, what, where, when, why and how. While this facilitates meeting the documentation requirements, it also facilitates better patient care. An essential component in adequately documenting, is recognizing and embracing documentation as a means of improving patient outcomes. A win-win for all!
