    I am interested in what other hospitals are doing with patient charts on the units that have information in them that is still paper. Do you have the patient last name on them and the patient room number? Right now the last name and first Initial is on the front and the spine of the chart and the room number. These are kept on their sides with the spine pointing out. They are under the counters at the nursing stations. I am curious as to what other facilities are doing.
