Article on the Good, the Bad and The Ugly of electronic media.

EXCERPT:
Emails can make communications with doctors, nurses, pharmacies, family members, caseworkers, hospitals, and placement agencies easy.  Fast and easy communication helps assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and residential care homes take better care of their residents.

THE GOOD: Better communication always equates to better care.   In this modern age emails and smart phones have become an essential part of our lives.   Emails are a form of documentation for example: if you send the physician an email stating the resident fell or has a urinary tract infection, you have a written record and proof you notified the doctor of the issue.  Keep in mind that just notifying the doctor is not enough.  You will need to follow up with the doctor to find out what is to be done about the fall or urinary tract infection.   We recommend you keep a phone call log and document each phone call you make. Care Home E-mails and Electronic Media

This document deals with the importance of effective communication. 
There are several ways to communicate: listening, understanding, responding, empathy, and body language. 

Excerpt:
Listening
An important part of communication is listening to the person talking to you.  Learn to listen, don't get distracted, especially by what you are going to say next.  We often don't hear people talk, because we are so busy talking.  Don't allow outside distractions to interfere with your conversation, pay attention to the person that is speaking to you.  If the conversation is of a confidential nature go somewhere that offers a bit of privacy, such as your office.  Listen with the purpose of understanding. Effective Communication

Excerpt:
Obtaining the health care records is one of the first things that needs to happen in any health care related case.  On the Defense side, if the record of care is correctly documented and maintained, it can make it very easy to defend a client.

However, if the documentation is incomplete, it could cause additional problems, such as when a staff member documents a problem, but forgets to document what was done about the problem.
