Clock Patient Note Time Management

i am having problem in switching b/w upper and lower case multiple times in PN, its taking me lot of time. Does anyone know if we can write whole PN in capitals??

Is it only me who thinks FA patients notes are too extensive and many times exceed word/line limit? Its hard to type long FA notes in 10 mins, i would like to say that my typing is average if not good. I need some opinion on this too.

Thanks..

Everyone agrees that FA notes are too long. So, don't worry. Search around and you will find plenty of posts about this.

i think FA notes are for reference. you will develop your own pattern and language as you practice. you can never remember everything from the FA anyways

The accepted abbreviations on page 13 is it. Using abbreviations beyond that list is done at your own risk. It all depends if the person marking your notes gives a damn or not.
