Mark a note as error if it was documented in the patient's chart in error. Notes marked as an error will not be shown in the Active notes list and will not be included in any patient reporting, such as a CCDA report. If marked in error, the note can be restored as necessary. Once restored, the note is listed under the Active list. Only users who created the note, were assigned to the note, or signed the note are able to mark notes as an error or restore notes marked as error.
