  1. I would also say that the records are there to get paid far more than for legal protection. Every note is a possible economic “fraud” without the appropriate documentation. Not every note falls into the category of significant legal risk.

    Happy – Good point. Especially in the hospital. I was thinking more of the clinical setting where doctors (once upon a time) had the chance to get to know their patients. Obsessive charting in that environment ironically does little to protect anyone from lawsuits because we often form better relationships with our records than with our patients.


  3. From the patient’s point of view? I’m far less likely to adopt an adversarial stance toward the doctor who spends “good, real time” helping me — and whose notes, therefore, are likely to be more on target (albeit shorter).
