There are hundreds and hundreds of thousands of errors in both patients medical and treatment records. Likely millions;
DSH is on an antiquated paper system and has not updated to a modern-day digital computer database for patients records;
Staff must manually search through hundreds of pages of disorganized files (which are frequently purged) to find hard to read information constantly to complete dozens of daily reports, all the while multitasking many other patient care duties/responsibilities;
Most staff (many due to laziness) simply copy and paste one week’s/month’s information into the next week’s/month’s report. The consequence is that one error gets multiplied month to month to a degree that is incalculable at this point. The cost to audit and potential lawsuits in this domain alone are in the stratosphere when everyone gets dialed-in to this issue.
