I have just started a job back into the nursing field after having a baby. The nursing home I am at does not have a standardized form that they use to aide in writing monthly summaries. Does anyone have ideas on how to start a form for this??
At this time, they make individual entries in the pages of the nursing notes each week-
so if you want to read the monthly summary, there is 4 different entries to read, and you have to search through the pages of the nursing notes to find them.
This seems pretty silly when I know that other homes have forms that they use to do monthly summaries. If you have any ideas to help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Actually there is a book you can order forms from for the long term acute settings. Since for the most part HFCA regulates the pace is really a no brainer.
The company is Briggs and you can find it on line.
