After the handover, you noticed that the outgoing nurse documented an intervention on a wrong patient chart. What should you do to correct it, maintain safety and continuation of care?

  • Discard the paper/ document

  • Cross the wrong entry with a line, indicated it is an error, write the date, time, name & signature, document the care correctly.

  • Leave it, never alter pt record

  • Inform the nurse manager, let her draw a line on the entry and place her name & signature
