Table 2 Charting requirement error rate per type of chart, baseline and during intervention

From: The MOWER (middle of the week everyone gets a re-chart) pilot study: reducing in-hospital charting error with a multi-intervention

  Mean number of requirement errors ±SD (n)   
Baseline During intervention Reduction in Errors p value
All charts 4.6 ± 1.3 (420) 3.4 ± 1.7 (159) −1.2 (95%CI 0.9, 1.5) < 0.001
Weekday charts 4.5 ± 1.3 (323) 3.3 ± 1.7 (132) − 1.2 (95%CI 0.9, 1.5) < 0.001
Weekend charts 4.7 ± 1.4 (97) 4.1 ± 1.5 (27) −0.6 (95%CI − 0.01, 1.2) 0.09
Primary charts 4.6 ± 1.3 (333) 3.7 ± 1.5 (127) −0.9 (95%CI 0.6, 1.2) < 0.001
