I'm working on a masters thesis focusing on nursing documentation and I was hoping you could help me out. I need examples (ie. sentences) of nursing documentation. I've created some myself, but admittedly my vocab is a little small considering I haven't worked bedside in 5+ years.
To help me collect this info I've created an online database - http://ndep.stemos.com
The process is really dead simple - there is a form on the website with two fields you need to fill out. The actual sentence and the type of sentence you've entered (choices are observation, diagnosis, intervention & outcome). That's it. Feel free to enter what ever you want - as long as it is realistic.
If you can spare 2, 5 or even 10 minutes that would be appreciated. My goal is to collect 1000 examples in the next 20 days.
If you want to learn more about why I'm doing this goto http://ndep.stemos.com/collect/about
Thanks - and feel free to send this to any of your nursing friends!
PS - I appologize to all those expecting something to do with Jerry McGuire (The "help me help you" is a quote from the movie). My second choice - "Please do some free work for me so I can complete my thesis" didn't seem as appealing.
In the end I do expect this to "help" all nurses everywhere - so it's not completely untrue :-)
