Common Problems

Discharge summaries started in the morning and finished later in the day, the template needs to be refreshed prior to signing. Otherwise, discharge medications will be incorrect. This is important for quality measures that check for adherence to treatment guidelines for stroke and heart accreditation. Additionally, it creates potential for errors as the PCP relies on the DC summary for correct information regarding treatments and drug changes. Be extra careful to refresh DC summary notes before signing. Consider using 3 asterisks *** with a reminder in the DC summary template.
