Hello, I am new to this site but the topic of computerized charting caught my eye. I have worked at three hospitals (in the past 20 yrs) that have had computerized charting. i can say from experience that when you get use to it (and that might take one week to 2 months) it does give you more time for patient care. And I know that is why I became a nurse, to take care of the ill. We all hate paper work and this frees us in alot of ways. In fact I am looking into nurse informatics as a new career ( when I get old LOL) so would like any input on that. Again this is a great site and have enjoyed reading and getting to know everyone.
