    Does anybody know if there is some kind of reg about documenting on your MAR on a timely basis? I know when I use to work on the floor, our computer charting system would "time out" after an hour for documenting Meds given. Im just not sure if this is just a hospital policy or if it some kind of standard Im not aware of?
