wow, i couldn't have stated this any better!
i wonder how the lawyers handle malpractice suits, all that charting, all those spread sheets with duplicate charting, reams of paper. "you charted that you did this on form b, however we do note that you did not remember to check box a on form a!-- did you actually do the task?"
old charting was so simple, you do your assessment and chart it, then anything comes up chart it, bang -- done! it's all on one page for the most part, no multiple multiple forms to plow through...agh! the good old days! also you could easily compare the assessments several days prior if needed, easily. course picking up the papers that fell out of a loose binder was hell on this earth, but i'm sure a better charting system via the computer without the bells and whistles could be created.
