I then had a moment of questioning if I should change it by just a single number, to 142/68 or something, just enough to make it different and clearly a new set of vitals. Or even to chart the correct identical BP/HR, but free text a note that yes, they are in fact a new set. Which then led to me feeling horribly guilty for even thinking about falsifying data, but also wondering if I'm just a crazy person simply for having this series of thoughts.
Paranoia over chart auditing is such a weird thing.
And then I remembered that everyone, everywhere, always charts 16 as the RR (edit: in the stable, non-respiratory or neuro patients. I'm not that shitty of a nurse; geeze, guys!) and then I felt better about myself.
