Properly Document Incidents in your Rescue

March 21, 2012

Correct documentation of an incident is significant in lawsuit cases, follow-up actions, to trend regularities of occurrence, to assess policies and procedures, and advance safety for the organization. Verify your organization’s policy and procedures to analyze what incidents need to be acknowledged. Punctual recollection and information repossession should be performed after the incident, so neutral data is obtained. List all the details of the incident in sequential order answering who, when, where, how, and why. When documenting, stick to the truth and avoid putting your beliefs and persuasions from others in. Try not to label the person, but explain what was observed. Be as concise as possible while being truthful and clear.
