  4. Go ahead and open the scheduled task for the Test Patient and try out using the flowsheet
  5. Enter the information like you would enter it for the actual patient you are currently caring for
  6. Sign & finish the note
  7. Once you are complete, the note will be automatically submitted to Quality Assurance for review.
