Lawyers call the medical record "the one witness that never lies and never dies".  Nursing negligence lawsuits are often lost because the medical record fails to show that the nurse met the standard of care. Learn strategies for documentation that can protect and defend you in a lawsuit AND promotes safe patient care.

Good documentation is the key to your defense!

This just may be the most important nursing conference you’ll ever attend!



  • Effectively improve your documentation AND patient care
  • Examine attitudes and beliefs vs. facts and knowledge
  • Discuss landmark legal cases affecting the medical record
  • Learn what lawyers look for in the medical record
  • Examine documentation from real medical legal case studies

Improved Patient Safety is the Goal

For all nurses of all specialties.
