Patient care always comes first. I'm a traveler and see a new computer
system every 13 weeks. I admit that I don't get everything in the system
sometimes but I have never left a patient hanging.
Charting of IV starts, port access, foley insertion.... sometimes it's
charted, sometimes it's not. Meds are the exception. They get done but the chart auditors will have to assume that IV meds/fluids were given through an IV that was there somewhere.
It's a compromise. Getting the job done or apeasing the iChart Gods.
You can only hope that as you become more familiar with the system
that you will become more efficinet with the charting.
