In this issue of the newsletter, you'll learn how to analyze flow sheets.

Go with the Flow

Go with the flow. Flow sheets, that is. You know the kind of nursing records I'm talking about. These forms combine 24 hours worth of information on a single (or sometimes a double or triple) page. Flow sheets were a wonderful invention for staff nurses, physical therapists, and other healthcare providers because this form of charting is much quicker to use than narrative notes.

But this boon for healthcare providers can be a bane for legal nurse consultants. There's a ton of information on each flow sheet. How do LNCs review these records and summarize them for attorneys? Let's take a look at ways to quickly and effectively analyze flow sheets.
