In 13 yrs, I've only filed an incident report against one nurse, and only because I thought the case would turn into a lawsuit and I felt I needed to justify my position for future reference.
I see doctors write "fill out an incident report" as an order, but they are SUPPOSED to be taught that doing so is 'incorporating by reference' the report into any legal case.
But, in fact, I have never filled out an incident report in response to a doctor's order. I'm not their toady, if they want one, pens work in their hands, as well, as evidenced by their ability to write an order to write one up.
In my 13 yrs of ignoring probably 200 'orders' to write up an incident report, I've only been called on it once. My response: 'you didn't get that? I put it under your door. I'll write it up, again.' There was no follow-up on the fact that I didn't write it up, "again".
Mostly, I see incident reports as wastes of time and blackmail devices. They tend to only be used to 'get' someone, and that is a waste of my time.
Oh, I know their 'intent'. But, intent and actual practice are two different things.
