Scribe Recognition

Charting Tips

  • Buzzwords to be beware of:
    -chest pain radiating to the back which signifies aortic dissection
    -worst headache of my life->meningitis
    -sudden onset of a headache->intracranial bleed
    -lethargic (for children)
    -irritable and inconsolable (for children)
  • If you lose internet connection while you're in a chart and then get locked out with an error message stating you're still in the chart, wait 20 minutes and you will then see an incomplete chart which you can continue working in.
  • You may see something like G1P1001 in PEDS. This is a way of reporting births in the "TPAL" format which stands for t=term births p=pre-term births a=abortions and l=living children. So the above term would mean the woman had been pregnant once and delivered a full term child who is still living.
