Do you ever feel like the nurses you follow are just trying to placate families and breaking rules and charting fake ish?  Especially in peds home health.  Then parents look at you like your crazy when you refuse to jeopardize your license.

The majority of my clients don't even open the home chart, (or tablet), much less read the nursing notes.  They have no idea what is charted and what is left out or embellished.  However, I've seen plenty of charting that is for show only.  I keep my mouth shut about that because the supervisors don't care anyway.  I tend to my own garden patch and walk by the other patches.  That way I keep my job for a little while longer.

I find this practice to be very dangerous. You must document truthfully, or what happens if something happens to the child and the documentation doesn't add up? I would not put my license on the line for anyone.
