Designed for rapid on-the-job reference, Documentation in Action offers comprehensive, authoritative, practice-oriented, up-to-the-minute guidelines for documenting every situation in every nursing practice setting and important nursing specialties. Need-to-know information is presented in bulleted lists, charts, flow sheets, sidebars, and boxes, with icons and illustrative filled-in samples.

Coverage includes documentation for care of patients with various diseases, complications, emergencies, complex procedures, and difficulties involving patients, families, and other health care professionals. Suggestions are given for avoiding legal pitfalls involving telephone orders, medication reactions, patients who refuse care, and much more. A section addresses computerized documentation, HIPAA confidentiality rules, use of PDAs, nursing informatics, and electronic innovations that will soon be universal.
