Evaluative criteria are measurement parameters that are based upon an accepted rule, standard or principle. All phases of care need to be clearly documented and evaluated. If the documentary evidence of evaluation is inadequate, all future care actions are in jeopardy of being unsuitable or even potentially hazardous. This chapter guides nurses on how to accurately use the parameters of evaluation and correctly document it.
