I'm wondering how other home health agencies handle missed visits. Currently, when we miss a visit and it doesn't follow our Plan of Treatment we write an order like the following: "Home Health Plan of Treatment states 2-3xwk for home health aides; however, client was only seen 1x week of 8/5/12 per client request because he was not feeling well" I finally decided to read through the guidelines and it sounds like we need to notify the Physician of any missed visit, even if it still follows the Plan of Treatment; however an order doesn't need to be written if it follows the Plan of Treatment. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
