Advance Practice Nurses, I have a question...
If you work in a clinic or doctor's office, how late do you allow a scheduled patient to sign in before requiring that they reschedule?
We are in the process of revamping the clinic contract, and we are spelliing everything out to ensure the cessastion of a rash of "Well, I didn't know THAT." I want to be fair about the tardy policy without inviting a rash of late patients who know when they can slide in under the wire.
Thank you in advance for your input. I'm happy to post a copy of this contract if anyone wants to tweak it for use in your clinic.
