A s patients move through- out your facili- ty on the day of their procedures, the paper- work can really add up. We had a problem with our patients leaving copies of their paper- work throughout the facility, such as in the lobby, restrooms or dressing room. This created a privacy issue. Now we store each patient's chart in a manila envelope. We place all copies of the patient's paperwork in the envelope and then give it to the patient at the time of discharge.
