Important Tip for Everyone in the year 2020!

2020blog.jpg

With the new decade comes new practices. As we enter into the New Year, it is important to take into consideration all of the different challenges or possibilities that may arise. Something to keep in mind during the year 2020 is that the year should always be written as a four-digit number and not abbreviated, so that the date cannot be at risk for alterations. For example if the date March 1, 2020 is abbreviated to 3/1/20, it can easily be changed to a different year by adding two digits after the 20, such as a ‘17’ could change the date to 3/1/2017 or a ‘21’ could change it to 3/1/2021. By signing the legal documents with an abbreviated year, you can be at risk for fraudulent activity.

Entering 2020, many officials are encouraging the general public not to abbreviate the year. As nurses, it is important that our documentation be 100% clear and as such, we also should not abbreviate 2020. Electronic health records that automatically date and time stamp entries are helpful in minimizing this risk. However, hand-written prescriptions, return to work notes, and other handwritten documentation should contain the entire written numerical year. According to the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba, nurses should “Record date and time with each professional contact (to support clear communications it is best to write the date in full by month-day-year (e.g. October 9, 2016 at 2010 hrs. NOT: 10/09/12 at 8:10) or as outlined in your organizational policy.”
