In the age of electronic health records (EHR) and value-based purchasing, accurate and complete nursing documentation is crucial. Proper documentation affects not only quality of care, but also facilities’ costs and revenues. Redundant documentation wastes time and money, while inadequate documentation negatively affects Joint Commission core measures and can result in license suspensions or legal action against a healthcare facility—an expensive and often damaging outcome.

Improving Nursing Documentation and Reducing Risk helps nurse managers create policies, processes, and ongoing auditing practices to ensure that complete and accurate documentation is implemented by their staff, without creating additional time burdens.
