[font=lucida sans unicode]hi guys! i have been in ltc for 8 years. i am a 3-11 rn supervisor. the don and i started at the same time in our facility 3 months ago. he is awesome!!! he has an acute care background with no ltc experience, which i think may actually help rather than hinder him. what he wants is to find some kind of "flowsheet", like is used in acute care, to do daily charting. does anyone use any type of flowsheet charting in their ltc facility? i have searched online all day and havent found much of anything helpful.
[font=lucida sans unicode]any suggestions?
never saw it in ltc for nursing...although the cnas have plenty of flowsheets. for ltc nursing, i am not sure what you could put on one...maybe nursing rounds, siderails, callbell, bed position (down), alarms, o2, teds, dressing d&i, dress. change, etc.? maybe a few other things.... that would be pretty easy.
oh, pain scale, of course...forgot that.....oh, and trach inner cannula changes, dress. changes, alll kinds of tubing changes!....and peg site notations! hey, there is a lot of stuff! lol
