A registered nurse had a very busy day as her patient was sick, got intubated & had other life saving procedures. She documented all the events & by the end of the shift recognized that she had documented in other patient’s record. What is best response of the nurse?

  • She should continue documenting in the same file as the medical document cannot be corrected

  • She should tear the page from the file & start documenting in the correct record

  • She should put a straight cut over her documentation & write as wrong, sign it with her NMC code, date & time

  • She should write as wrong documentation in a bracket & continue
