Extra paper work and assessments


It is becoming an ever-increasing problem trying to document all of the assessments and exams that a staff nurse has to perform. Not only are we required to do the physical exam on our patients but also all of the nutritional, abuse of both physical and substance, suicide prevention examinations, medication reconciliation forms. This is not to mention if for some reason you actually find something wrong and then the required paper work just to report it. It is a wonder that nurses even have time to treat our patients and give them the time and attention they deserve.

Do any Forensic Nurses have suggestions for the non-Forensic Nurses?
