Book on charting?

  1. I will be graduating in a few weeks and I would like to purchase a book on charting/documentation. Our nursing program did not cover this, and I would just like to buy a good resource/reference book. Does anyone know of one they recommend? I've looked on B& but just wanted to hear from someone who might have advice.

    Thank you!

    Try either of the two books
    Complete Guide To Documentation ISBN#1-58255-238-X
    Chart Smart The A-Z Guide for Better Nursing Documentation ISBN#1-58255-096-4

    Both of these books cover any and everything about how to chart, when to chart and the different styles of charting including computer charting.

    Good Luck!

    I have ChartSmart and have found it helpful for almost every situation. I believe that it was written or edited by a lawyer.
