    Explanation
    Physical assessment should be completed within the first 24 hours of admission to inpatient services.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Operative reports should not be dictated or written in the medical record immediately before surgery.

    Explanation
    Medical records can be classified into two categories: non privileged and privileged. Non privileged information refers to medical records that can be accessed by anyone involved in the patient's care, such as doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. On the other hand, privileged information is more sensitive and confidential, and can only be accessed by specific individuals, such as the patient's attorney or a court of law. This classification helps ensure the privacy and security of the patient's medical information.

Timely completion of discharge summaries is crucial for effective communication between healthcare providers and continuity of care for the patient.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a patient's medical records are presented in court as evidence in a professional liability case and they have been sloppily corrected, it means that there have been alterations made to the records. If it can be proven that these alterations were intentionally made, it strengthens the case for the prosecuting attorney.

Therefore, the answer "true" is correct.
