hospitals use electronic charting, mostly bedside based on where I have worked. Each patient room has a computer. The patient's wristband is scanned prior to administering medications and the medication labels are scanned to avoid giving patients the wrong medications.

Nurses use the same charting systems that doctors use. They just use it differently. the key is that everyone has access to the part of the record that they need. For example, physicians input orders. The system flags new orders for the nurses. When the orders are completed, the nurses record how/when they took care of the need. We have two large hospitals in our area. One uses Epic and the other uses Cerner. Both are very similar and have their good and bad points just like any software system.

There are several charting systems, some are called differently in other hospitals.
Eclipse. Quest. Epic. ProTouch. AllScripts.
These are just some of the EMR systems.
