Late entry Documentation

  1. Hi,
    I am looking for any information regarding Home Health Computer generated documentation on late charting. Are there any rules, policies, guidelines or position statements that say you can not chart after a pts. discharge and if there are guidelines on late charting how late is too late. Is it reasonable or acceptable to chart 3 months after a pts. discharge? There are no P&P from my agency re: Late entry Documentation. This just doesn't sound kosher to me. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You,
