Several of my colleagues will dictate consultation notes in which they state they don't have the complete history. For example: "Mrs. Smith was hospitalized last month with chest pain and shortness of breath. However, the details of that hospitalization are unclear to me." From a legal standpoint, is this something that should be avoided or is it acceptable? Thanks.
