How The Judiciary Interprets Nursing Documentation

How The Judiciary Interprets Nursing Documentation

A 1 hour 40 minute webinar attracting 5 plus CPD hours with readings.

This 2023 update of the 2020 session includes new cases and:

  • how your colleagues may unintentionally lead you into ‘trouble’ regarding practices/policies?
  • the judiciary’s view on the use of icons such as +++; ↑↓
  • it may be noted that you were busy, short staffed, or had the wrong skill mix, but it does not usually absolve you of your responsibility to provide reasonable care.
  • words such as agitated, confused, invasive, inappropriate, aggressive, reassured are not facts.
  • more than 5 breaches when you leave medication with a patient/resident.
  • electronic recording, be careful and safe.

This session is about mostly real Australian nurses and cases where, because documentation was inadequate, incomplete or incorrect it was determined the standard of care provided was a contributing factor to poor patient/resident outcome.
