Transcript of Examining Licensing Complaints

Accurately reflect your diagnosis process

Document patient's following of orders

Detail your plan and assessment

Take an extra 60 seconds
Facility Documentation
If administration visits a disgruntled patient - make sure it's noted

Any follow up contact with the facility should be well documented
Nursing Documentation
Details, details, details

Reserve negative comments

Observations are critical

Accurately reflecting times patient was visited by nursing staff
Handwritten Notes
Drawback is handwriting legibility

Advantage is more description, particularly with nursing notes

If you are using a electronic system try to reinforce habits of describing the treatment and plan
Malpractice and licensing complaints many times turn on communication with the patient
Electronic Notes
Ensure notes are being entered at the correct times

Do not let electronic records limit the explanation of treatment and plan for the patient

Do not only rely on drop down lists
Complaint Process

Recommendation by Board of Medicine

Contested Case Hearing
Receiving a Complaint
