The Dashboard is a place where you can view and sign different documentation that is waiting on your review signature. Particularly for a director of nursing, or medical provider that needs to review sign different assessments and forms, the medical provider may need to bulk review sign orders that have been entered on behalf of them by another staff member, or to view and sign lab results.
