Origins of Charting

  1. Just curious. Does anyone know the documentable origin of charting? Do not be confused with accurate recordkeeping such as flow sheets and MARS. I am referring to the CYA mentality that makes nursing a joke. My mother graduated from nursing school shortly after WWII, and she said they have always done it, "So you wouldn't be sued". Can anyone pick this up and run with it?
