Anyone out there work in a Rehabilitatin center that is LTC?
I have posted to Rehab. Nsg., but cant seem to gt the information I am seeking.
I need information on a Restorative Nursing program, so I know im not going to get fired in 1 year!
I am creating a nursing rehab program from scratch, with the help of someone who also has never been in rehab nursing.
I have read the MDS(teach it for my facility) but it dosent give guidelines.
I want to know what kind of documentation is needed for a group program. Should there be seperate paperwork from the forms I already have the CNA's signing? (we do not have appointed RNA's) Does the documentataion need to be different? Other than the fact that there are only 2 people in the group(no more than 4 allowed) I still have the CNA's just documenting on the forms for accountability(CNA's not charting here, just flow sheet accountability).
currently I am charting weekly on certain persons who are in capture or Medicare/Caid issues. I know that this is not outlined either, but to follow progress, and report progress to change the plan of care.. that is what I am doing.
Even my DON has no advice for me on this. And I attended seminars before I was working on the 'launch' of this program, so, now my questions are different. Somehow I thought I would be able to find the answers, but I cannot!
Please help, Im most desperate!
