Pro Tip: If you choose this method for documenting discharge instructions, they will be available directly in the patient's record along with all associated visit and procedure notes. To send DIscharge instructions home with your client, you can print the related Chart Note.
If you would prefer to share Discharge instructions independent of your other visit and procedure notes, you can create a separate Chart Note for just your Discharge Instructions.
