Clear, accurate and complete documentation is crucial to the delivery of quality health care as it provides an efficient way to communicate vital resident information to all members of the interdisciplinary team. Because nurses have frequent and continual contact with residents throughout the day, their role in documenting any changes in health status that may occur, is critical. Residents in long-term care (LTC) settings do not receive the same level of medical service intensity as that provided to acute care patients, so nursing documentation is even more essential to their receiving comprehensive and continuous care. This course focuses on the accuracy of the documentation to support the Minimum Date Set (MDS) by decreasing the potential for penalties and deficiencies. The purpose of this course is to present key topics related to nursing documentation.
