Patient Event Reporting

Hi all!

I am wondering if you all report documentation errors in your error/event reporting systems. For example, if a provider leaves out information in their note, would staff report this in the event reporting system? Would it still be reported if the information is in another part of the chart? For instance, a provider does not indicate that a patient is pregnant in their note, but there is a pregnancy flag somewhere else in the chart would this still be considered a documentation error of omission?
Appreciate your insights!
