Once you sign and lock a progress note, you cannot edit or delete it. However, you may add a Chart Note on the same date as a locked note. The chart note can act as an addendum to the locked note.
How to add an addendum
- Locate the correct progress note and make note the date and time of the appointment
- Navigate to the the client’s Overview page
- Enter the addendum into the chart note field
- Select a date and time that immediately follows the progress note that you want to append
- Click Add Note to save
Now the chart note you added will appear directly after the progress note on the client's Overview page.
