Writing Guidelines:

Answer every question carefully use proper citation in either APA or MLA Style. Be specific and limit your submission to questions being asked and issues mentioned.
Include a reference page APA or MLA style on this page also include any other sources used in preparing this project.
Make sure you answer question in a complete paragraph that includes a introductory sentence at least four sentences of explanation, and a concluding sentence. check your spelling grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. Provide a clear organization include words like first, however, on the other hand, and so on consequently since, next and when.


My first question. Should corrections be date and time stamped?

Could you proofread my paragraph and let me know if I'm doing the assignment correctly?


Information may sometimes be incorrectly entered into a medical record. When this happens, the error must be corrected. The person who made the error should also make the correction, however, it shouldn't appear that the records are being altered to cover up a mistake in diagnosis or treatment. Correction rules apply for both written and electronic records. When a medical record exists in eletronic form, errors are usually corrected in the form of an addendum. The original record remains intact, and isn't actually altered. The proper method to correct a written record is to draw a single line through the entry and write "error" next to it. In conclusion, additions to records should be time and date stamped, and the person making the additions should be identified in the record.

On my reference page I will list the web sites, and books that I used to gather the information above.

    Information may sometimes be incorrectly entered into a medical record. When this happens, the error must be corrected. The person who made the error should also make the correction, (EITHER SEMICOLON OR NEW SENTENCE.) however, it shouldn't appear that the records are being altered to cover up a mistake in diagnosis or treatment. Correction rules apply for both written and electronic records. When a medical record exists in eletronic (TYPO) form, errors are usually corrected in the form of an addendum. The original record remains intact, (NO COMMA.) and isn't actually altered. The proper method to correct a written record is to draw a single line through the entry and write "error" next to it.

    In conclusion, additions to records should be time and date stamped, and the person making the additions should be identified in the record.

    I don't know about the information, but at least, I proofread the material. Your spell checker should have picked up the typo.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
