A nurse administers Zofran to a nauseated patient but forgets to document the administration. The charge nurse is aware of this mistake and makes the appropriate changes to the medication administration record. Which type of documentation error is this?


•If a nurse documents a medication given or an intervention or assessment done by another nurse, this is an unauthorized entry.

Incorrect options:

•Omission is when information is missing from the patient's record.

•Late entry is when a nurse documents at a time later than when it should have been documented.
