Case Studies 1.8: 1 hour 1. The Joint Commission documentation requirements for Emergency Department reports are to verify the documentation in the health record is timely, complete, and accurate, to verify that the documents in the health record supports the diagnosis and reflects the patient’s progress, clinical findings, and discharge status, to compile organization-wide health record documentation guidelines, and to analyze information needs of customers across the healthcare continuum. 2. After auditing these five cases, there is serious need of documentation improvement. Firstly, anytime you use statistics, you should add units of measurement. For example, one report just stated that the patient’s temperature was 98.7 and left us to figure out if it meant Fahrenheit or Celsius. Healthcare workers should always be precise when writing reports to slim down the chance of error. 3. I would make requirements to ensure that clinical documentation is well written and complete. I would hire a team to read over and review these documents before they are used.
