We are starting computerized charting. For reasons I won't bore you with, if a pt goes home with a PICC, we have to document the line as being discontinued, then under comments chart "line remains in place for..."
Obviously, our nurses are concerned about the legal ramifications (charting they did something they didn't do). I'm tring to get something in writing stating we need to chart as such, but so far, NO LUCK (huh.)
Anyone else encounter a similar issue? Suggestions? Are we falsifying the record by charting this way?
