Documentation: It's Not Just For Patients

First few Article Sentences

"If it's not documented, it did not happen" is a well-recognized maxim related to the defense of cases involving the delivery of medical care. A variation of that maxim is applicable when defending an employment case brought by a disgruntled employee: If you did not document the conduct, it couldn't have been important. And it follows that if it wasn't important, you can't rely on it for any significant decisions related to that employee, including hiring, discipline or discharge.
