Are you aware of the implications of what you or your staff record? The concept of accountability is one which is familiar to all professionals. While the term is in constant use, many would have problems defining Accountability. Each professional is, on a personal level, answerable and can be called to account for their professional conduct. All professionals produce records in the course of their work which are regularly relied on as evidence in legal cases. All too often they fall short of required professional and evidential standards when examined in courts, inquests, tribunals and professional committees. This may have serious consequences for both you and your employer.
