Thanks everyone for your responses.....however I did proceed to follow through on what I did FIND out or OBSERVE from this patients incident. He was awake and able to answer questions in regard to the fall, I took vitals, gave him a full body assessment, and FOUND out that he was just trying to get up out of bed and his legs gave out. No dizzyness, pain or anything, just weakness in the legs. He eased himself easily onto the floor when he knew he couldnt support his own weight. No head injury nothing like that. He has been told repeatly to use the call bell( and you know the elderly they want to remain independent or dont want to wait as most of us wouldnt. And decided to do it for himself. All this was documented but the REAL COMPLAINT on my note was the word "FOUND" so being the State was coming in soon, this kind of twisted their gonads a bit and they were super upset. Now, that I was interviewed for another nursing job recently, I ASKED them what word is proper documentation when writing on a fall. They didnt think it was such a big deal....the word FOUND, was fine, so is the word, OBSERVED. These Medical Lawyers seem to picky on word play and instill more things into a already exploding basket of proper legal terms that dont SOUND like this happened or that happening. Its so detailed, which is good in a way, but confusing in another, making nurses so paranoid about writing something they saw and then thinking they will get fired for it. Everyone sees an accident differently. If there were a car accident at an intersection and there were 4 witnesses, one on a bike, one standing at the crosswalk, one with screaming kids at her side and one old guy, you would get a total of 4 Different stories on how that accident occurred. If we just stuck to the basics, plain and simple, all this wouldnt be necessary. Instead of things getting simpler with all our technology, seems to be getting much worse and more complicated.
