Copying and pasting in the EHR can improve efficiency, but may bring unintended patient safety risks. Those risks include documentation in the wrong medical record and propagation of outdated information in the intended record. Copied and pasted notes can complicate patient assessment and muddle medical decision making. The goal of this activity is to provide physicians, nurses, quality and safety leaders, and risk professionals with knowledge about copy and paste risks in malpractice cases and discuss documentation best practices.
Adam Schaffer, MD, MPH, Amy Germond, Esq., and Margaret Janes, JD, RN will provide their expert points of view about malpractice risks and identify opportunities to improve attendees’ own practice.
