Of Critical Importance: How to Properly Monitor and Document

Monitoring and documentation are the means by which we determine the effectiveness of our work. Monitoring utilizes tools, for the most part, to observe and evaluate the conditions in which CS work is performed. And documentation provides records to show that requirements are met, and a trail to determine where a process failed so that it can be corrected. This program stresses the importance of both, and how they go hand-in-hand with all other steps performed in CSSD to ensure safe patient care.
