Computer Vs Flow Sheet

  1. Which do you prefer?

    I hate flow sheets lol they are soooo confusing!!!! Computer is faster and I think safer. I love the computer print out with medications...a god send because I still cant interpret MARS that good. At first I was embarrassed but then I asked another nurse to look @ this one MED on the MAR and she's like "wth is that." I have a terrible time reading sloppy writing.

    I prefer computer...but I really like computers that have flow charts built right in. Those are very nice.

    I really don't like paper MARS at all. Very confusing with things all highlighted when d/c'd.
