Assess the unity secretary's understanding of the orders to be transcribed?
Wait until the head nurse comes back from vacation?
Assume that the errors wre probably just a function of workng on a different unity with clients having different clinical conditions.?
Complete an incident report for each of the transcriptions errors?

Print and share with friends and family.

This sounds very close to homework. Even if it is not......We are happy to help with anything but need your input first. What do you think should be done and why or why not it should be done that way?
