The consistency of Shannon entropy applied to the statistical outcomes of quantum experiments was analyzed. The Shannon entropy was found to be fully consistent and its properties were not violated in quantum experiments. It was found that a change in the temporal order of the experiments led to change in entropy values of quantum experiments. It was observed that Shannon entropy is always context dependent in quantum experiments.
