Does documentation feel like a chore? Given the pressures of limited time and PDGM and the increasing scrutiny in hospice, it’s understandable that many of us sometimes feel this way.

It might help to view documentation through a different lens.

Documentation tells the story of each patient’s journey throughout the entirety of each episode of care. From initial admission through the treatment process and discharge, important details are carefully noted, allowing you and other caregivers to spot patterns and potential challenges so you can provide the absolute best level of care possible and avoid potential setbacks.

With that in mind, these tips will help you document more effectively and efficiently to communicate crucial information to those who need it.
