Penalties for Delinquent Charts

Friday, June 27, 2008 at 9:03:47 AM

Please remember to visit the Medical Records Department (H.I.M.) on a weekly basis to update your charts. Our delinquency rate is now below the Joint Commission standard. Outdated charts may also have serious patient care, legal and financial consequences. The Bylaws provide a mechanism to fine physicians on a daily basis for overdue charts, but this is not the preferred approach. Your voluntary cooperation would be appreciated!
