In this issue of the newsletter, you'll learn what kind of documents to redact and how to redact them.


As a new legal nurse consultant, you may be responsible for redacting documents.  As a nurse, you know that there's a correct way to note errors in medical records which includes, in part,  drawing a single line through the entry. The purpose of the single line is so that the entry isn't obliterated and can still be read. On the other hand, a redacted document is one that has had parts of it obliterated so that those parts can't be read. Click here to learn what kinds of documents are redacted in medical malpractice cases and how to correctly redact documents.
