1 Documentation in your 3rd year and beyond
Summer Quarter 2011 Amanda Kocoloski and Whitney Crye

2 Overview General principles of documentation
Types of Notes, the case of Sarah Bell Admit Note Pre-Op Note Procedure Note Operative Report Post-Op Note Progress Note Discharge Summary L&D Admit Note Labor Note Medication Prescriptions Assignment: Admission Orders

3 Introduction to hospital charting
Everything must be recorded somewhere!!! When starting a new rotation become familiar with the chart ASAP Paper vs. EMR Always: Date, time, and sign with rank Ask for templates or shortcuts; often designed to make things easier When you get to a new rotation ask to see the chart and logistics of how the office works and where they want you to write

4 Sample patient: Sarah Bell
Sarah is a 35 y/o f presenting to your office (outpatient) with a bulge in her groin. What do you want to know? Which aspects of the exam will you perform? What is your assessment? What is your plan?

5 Outpatient Note S: Pt is a 35 yo f presenting with a “bulge” in her groin x 2 months. It used to go away when she lays down but recently it remains even when supine. She admits to some discomfort and within the last day little abdominal pain that comes and goes. Last bowel movement 2 days ago. No nausea or vomiting. O: VS: T: 99.1 BP: 120/65 P: 90 R: 14 pain: 4/10 CV: S1 S2 no murmurs, no gallops Lungs: clear bilaterally, no wheezes, rhonchi, rales Abdomen: soft, irreducible mass in right groin below inguinal ligament appreciated, no erythema, mild pain with palpation. Flat, bowel sounds present, no rebound, no guarding, GU: no labial masses LE: warm no skin discoloration, +2/4 patellar and Achilles DTRs bilaterally, pulses palpable, A/P: 35 yo f with femoral hernia. Plan:1. admit to hospital 2. consult surgery

6 Sarah goes to the hospital
Sarah presents to the ER after her doctor calls ahead. You are sent to admit her to the floor. What do you need to know? What kind of exam will you do? What is your assessment? What is your plan?
