Lippincott publishes a book for nurses and students regarding correct charting methods. It is entitled Charting Made Incredibly Easy, and it can be found in any major bookstore in the medical/nursing section. I have a book called Surefire Documentation, which also has some good pointers on charting. The issue of charting is very important, because it can save you from being sued after bad patient outcome and will prove the care you provided.
