TECHNOLOGY: Hospital clocks are out of sync

*** begin quote ***

Clock in this room is five minutes slow as measured by my notebook and Verizon wireless phone.

*** end quote ***

So how can evidence of time be introduced in any court say in a medical malpractice suit?

If a nurse documents something using one of the many different clocks, then transcribes it to the computer, what time is it.

It adds an element of uncertainty and distrust. AND, if they are so sloppy in this very simple matter, what makes one think that it would be different in stuff that we don’t see, depend upon, and could be life threatening.
