Methods of Documentation
 Narrative Charting
 Source-Oriented Charting
 Problem-Oriented Charting
 PIE Charting
 Focus Charting
 Charting by Exception (CBE)
 Computerized Documentation
 Case Management with Critical Paths
Methods of Documentation
 Narrative Charting (TRADITIONAL CLIENT
RECORD)
• Describes the client’s status, interventions and treatments;
response to treatments is in story format.
• Narrative charting is now being replaced by other formats.
• Five Basic components of a
Traditional Client Record
 Admission sheet
 Physician’s order sheet
 Medical history
 Nurse’s notes
 Special records and reports (referrals, X-ray, reports, laboratory findings,
report of surgery, anesthesia record, flow sheets, vital signs, I&O,
Methods of Documentation
 Source-Oriented Charting
• Each person or department makes notations in a separate
section/s of the client’s chart.
• Narrative recording by each member (source) of the health
care team on separate records.
• Most Traditional
• Different disciplines chart on separate forms
• Each reader must consult various parts of the record to get
a complete picture
• Records become bulky
• For example the admission department has an admission
sheet, nurses use the nurses’ notes, physicians have a
physician notes, etc….
Methods of Documentation
 Problem-Oriented Medical Record( POMR) /Nurse’s
or narrative notes (SOAPIE format)
• Uses a structured, logical format called S.O.A.P.
 S- SUBJECTIVE. WHAT PT TELLS YOU.
 0 – OBJECTIVE. WHAT YOU OBSERVE, SEE.
 A – ASSESSMENT. WHAT YOU THINK IS GOING ON BASED ON YOUR DATA.
 P – PLAN. WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO.
CAN ADD TO BETTER REFLECT NURSING PROCESS
 I – INTERVENTION (SPECIFIC INTERVENTIONS IMPLEMENTED)
 E – EVALUATION. PT RESPONSE TO INTERVENTIONS.
 R – REVISION. CHANGES IN TREATMENT.
 Uses flow sheets to record routine care.
 SOAP entries are usually made at least every 24 hours on any unresolved problem.
Methods of Documentation
 PIE Charting
• P: Problem statement
• I: Intervention
• E: Evaluation
Example:
• P: Patient reports pain at surgical incision as 7/10 on 0 to 10 scale
• I : Given morphine 1mg IV at 23:35.
• E : Patient reports pain as 1/10 at 23:55.
Methods of Documentation
 Focus Charting (DAR)
• A method of identifying and organizing the narrative
documentation of all client concerns.
• Uses a columnar format within the progress notes to
distinguish the entry from other recordings in the
narrative notes (Date & Time, Focus, Progress note)
 DATA – SUBJECTIVE OR OBJECTIVE THAT SUPPORTS THE
FOCUS (CONCERN)
 ACTION – NURSING INTERVENTION
 RESPONSE – PT. RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
Ex:
 D – COMPLAINING OF PAIN AT INCISION SITE , PS: 7/10
 A – REPOSITIONED FOR COMFORT. DEMEROL 50MG IM GIVEN.
 R – STATES A DECREASE IN PAIN, “FEELS MUCH BETTER.”
Example of focus charting
Date & Time Focus: Progress notes:
09.Sep.2013 Acute pain related to surgical incision D: Patient reports pain as 7/10 on 0 to 10 scale.
A: Given morphine 1mg IV at 2335.
R: Patient reports pain as 1/10 at 2355.
Methods of Documentation
 Charting by Exception (CBE)
• The nurse documents only deviations from
pre-established norms (document only
abnormal or significant findings).
• Avoids lengthy, repetitive notes.
Methods of Documentation
 Computerized
Documentation
• Increases the quality of
documentation and save time.
• Increases legibility and accuracy.
• Facilitates statistical analysis of
data.
Methods of Documentation
 Case Management Process
• A methodology for organizing client care
through an illness, using a critical pathway.
• A critical pathway is a multidisciplinary plan
or tool that specifies assessments,
interventions, treatments and outcomes of
health related problems a cross a time line.
Forms for Recording Data
 Kardex
 Flow Sheets
 Nurses’ Progress Notes
 Discharge Summary
Forms for Recording Data
 The Kardex is used as a reference throughout
the shift and during change-of-shift reports.
• Client data (e.g name, age, admission date, allergy)
• Medical diagnoses and nursing diagnoses
• Medical orders, list of medications
• Activities, diagnostic tests, or specific data on the pt.

  • 27. Methods of Documentation  Narrative Charting  Source-Oriented Charting  Problem-Oriented Charting  PIE Charting  Focus Charting  Charting by Exception (CBE)  Computerized Documentation  Case Management with Critical Paths
  • 28. Methods of Documentation  Narrative Charting (TRADITIONAL CLIENT RECORD) • Describes the client’s status, interventions and treatments; response to treatments is in story format. • Narrative charting is now being replaced by other formats. • Five Basic components of a Traditional Client Record  Admission sheet  Physician’s order sheet  Medical history  Nurse’s notes  Special records and reports (referrals, X-ray, reports, laboratory findings, report of surgery, anesthesia record, flow sheets, vital signs, I&O,
  • 29. Methods of Documentation  Source-Oriented Charting • Each person or department makes notations in a separate section/s of the client’s chart. • Narrative recording by each member (source) of the health care team on separate records. • Most Traditional • Different disciplines chart on separate forms • Each reader must consult various parts of the record to get a complete picture • Records become bulky • For example the admission department has an admission sheet, nurses use the nurses’ notes, physicians have a physician notes, etc….
  • 30. Methods of Documentation  Problem-Oriented Medical Record( POMR) /Nurse’s or narrative notes (SOAPIE format) • Uses a structured, logical format called S.O.A.P.  S- SUBJECTIVE. WHAT PT TELLS YOU.  0 – OBJECTIVE. WHAT YOU OBSERVE, SEE.  A – ASSESSMENT. WHAT YOU THINK IS GOING ON BASED ON YOUR DATA.  P – PLAN. WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO. CAN ADD TO BETTER REFLECT NURSING PROCESS  I – INTERVENTION (SPECIFIC INTERVENTIONS IMPLEMENTED)  E – EVALUATION. PT RESPONSE TO INTERVENTIONS.  R – REVISION. CHANGES IN TREATMENT.  Uses flow sheets to record routine care.  SOAP entries are usually made at least every 24 hours on any unresolved problem.
  • 31. Methods of Documentation  PIE Charting • P: Problem statement • I: Intervention • E: Evaluation Example: • P: Patient reports pain at surgical incision as 7/10 on 0 to 10 scale • I : Given morphine 1mg IV at 23:35. • E : Patient reports pain as 1/10 at 23:55.
  • 32. Methods of Documentation  Focus Charting (DAR) • A method of identifying and organizing the narrative documentation of all client concerns. • Uses a columnar format within the progress notes to distinguish the entry from other recordings in the narrative notes (Date & Time, Focus, Progress note)  DATA – SUBJECTIVE OR OBJECTIVE THAT SUPPORTS THE FOCUS (CONCERN)  ACTION – NURSING INTERVENTION  RESPONSE – PT. RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION Ex:  D – COMPLAINING OF PAIN AT INCISION SITE , PS: 7/10  A – REPOSITIONED FOR COMFORT. DEMEROL 50MG IM GIVEN.  R – STATES A DECREASE IN PAIN, “FEELS MUCH BETTER.”
  • 33. Example of focus charting Date & Time Focus: Progress notes: 09.Sep.2013 Acute pain related to surgical incision D: Patient reports pain as 7/10 on 0 to 10 scale. A: Given morphine 1mg IV at 2335. R: Patient reports pain as 1/10 at 2355.
  • 34. Methods of Documentation  Charting by Exception (CBE) • The nurse documents only deviations from pre-established norms (document only abnormal or significant findings). • Avoids lengthy, repetitive notes.
  • 35. Methods of Documentation  Computerized Documentation • Increases the quality of documentation and save time. • Increases legibility and accuracy. • Facilitates statistical analysis of data.
  • 36. Methods of Documentation  Case Management Process • A methodology for organizing client care through an illness, using a critical pathway. • A critical pathway is a multidisciplinary plan or tool that specifies assessments, interventions, treatments and outcomes of health related problems a cross a time line.
  • 37. Forms for Recording Data  Kardex  Flow Sheets  Nurses’ Progress Notes  Discharge Summary
  • 38. Forms for Recording Data  The Kardex is used as a reference throughout the shift and during change-of-shift reports. • Client data (e.g name, age, admission date, allergy) • Medical diagnoses and nursing diagnoses • Medical orders, list of medications • Activities, diagnostic tests, or specific data on the pt.
