HIM Reminder - Legibility First

Monday, April 23, 2012 at 1:02:25 PM

Anyone who documents in the record needs to be sure that their documentation is legible to others. If documentation isn't legible, then the orders could be entered and given out incorrectly, care could be delayed trying to clarify the documentation, services could be missed or inappropriate care could be delivered. Please be sure that you aren't harming your patients through illegible documentation.
