ECG Assessment


It has come to my attention that some physicians are indicating the rhythm diagnosis on the hard copy of the ECG that is marked COPY, located within the chart.

From this point forward can you please not write anything on the hard copy ECG located in the chart.  Health Record’s new standard process is to shred the hard copy ECG labeled COPY as we have all ECGs stored electronically.  They are forced to save it if someone has written on it.
