I don't mind charting every single visit I make once. I get the importance of that for the hospital. It helps me realize how many people I have interacted with - even the ones who blew me off. BUT we have to chart everything twice! (three times if it is a trauma). Once for the hospital, once for the chaplain records. It takes hours. If the office is quiet, and I am awake I can get into a pretty good grove. IF. Usually I mess up and start over, and stand up to clear my head, and rush to finish so I can leave. And now I'm charting in my sleep. There is no rest for the weary.
Last night, Josh woke me up around 2:00 to tell me he was "having bad thoughts". I walked him to his bed, listening to the nightmare he had just had. It was scary! We laid down and talked about what fun things he could think about, then I prayed with him.
I crawled back into bed and as I was falling asleep, I dreamed I was charting. "conversation with son, prayed with son. Enter."
You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. Psalms 139:3 NLT
