Why do we still have paper!!!!

by STACEYM0204 STACEYM0204 (New) New

I have been working in nursing homes for the better part of three years and am amazed that we still have so much paper! I'm a nurse practitioner and when I come into the facility there is typically a stack of 30 documents that have to be signed by hand. Is there anyone who has found a way to avoid this? Right now the nursing home is getting upset because papers keep getting lost. Just doesn't seem possible that we still live this way. I feel like I'm in a third world country.

Please help!
