Book Recommendations | Documentation & Charting!

Are you a nurse graduate or nursing student looking for help in the documentation department? Well then, this book is for you! In my ethics course and at work, I see many stories of nurses being sued and/or fired for simple documentation errors or due to missing critical information. This book helps you figure out what you need to do and what needs to be documented depending on your patients diagnosis. From chest pain, confusion, sepsis, pneumonia and beyond... this book will give you the tools to success. This book arrived yesterday and I haven't been able to put it down. We all know what nursing interventions that need to done to assist patients who are unstable, but the documentation game is new to me. I know what needs to be done but I want to make sure I have the correct and most accurate documentation for my patient. Just because I'm am nurse, doesn't learn learning stops after the NCLEX. I learn something new every second of every day. This book will help me to stay out of court and at the bedside with my patients. Because ignorance will not keep you from being sued, you must take responsibility for your actions or absence of actions. You've made it this far in your nursing career, why not invest in something that might save your license!
