    • Computer assisted
    • Case mgmt system
  3. Advantages of source oriented charting (narrative)
    • Aspects of all steps of the nursing process

    • Chronological order
  4. Disadvantages of source oriented charting (narrative)

    • Lengthy entries discouraging team members from reading all parts
    • Both abnormal and normal findings
  5. Source oriented charting focuses on
    Patient's disease

    • Progress notes

    SOAP and PIE
    • Subjective

    • Revision

    • Requires continual evaluation and revision of the plan of care
  11. Disadvantages
    • Loss of chronological charting

    • If database is not sufficient, patient problems may be missed
    • Does not adhere to chartingb with focus on nursing diagnoses and expected outcomes
  17. Charting by exception is based on
    All standards of practice are carried out and met with normal response unless otherwise documented
  18. Advantages of charting by exception
    • Highlights abnormal data and patient trends
    • Decreases narrative charting time
    • Eliminates duplication of charting
  19. Disadvantage of charting by exception
    • Requires development of detailed protocols and standards
    • Requires retraining staff
    • Nurses become used to not charting that important data are sometimes omitted
  20. Advantages of computer aided charting
    • Date and time automatic
    • Legible notes
    • Fast communication
    • Can reduce errors
  21. Disadvantages of computer aided charting
    • Sophisticated security system needed
    • Large upfront cost
    • Can take a long time to set up
    • Computer down time
  22. Guidelines for charting about a sign or symptom
    • Quality
    • Quantity
    • Chronology
    • Setting
    • Aggravating or alleviating factors
    • Associated manifestations
  23. Charting is organized by
    Nursing diagnosis or problem
  24. If you make an error while charting
    Write "error" above it and add the date and initials
  25. If you have a late entry
    Write the time of the entry, circle it, and write "late entry" and your initials about the time
