Why documentation is just good patient care. This course will provide an understanding of patient care documentation and charting. Expert documentation for out of hospital providers is necessary for clinical and legal implications. Additionally, charting tools available to EMS are discussed.
The goal of this continuing education module is to help the practicing EMT or paramedic improve charting skills. This module consists of two parts; the first article will cover the purposes of patient care documentation and the essential components of an EMS chart. The second article will discuss charting formats, tools for documentation and some “do’s and dont’s” of charting.
