Hi, I've only been doing HH for 5 months now, and no one else at my agency seems to have a problem with this...
The field RN's complete the oasis, but cannot lock it, (we're almost completely computerized now). The QA nurse changes the answers as she sees fit, mainly MO questions, in order to get more $$$. In the computer system, the changes are automatically signed by her, because of her login, etc... and computer signature is required. However, when the 485 is sent, it has the field RN's name on it and she is required to sign it. The QA nurse does not sign it, and her name is not on it anywhere. Changes are not sent to the field RN to review and authorize. Does this sound right?
I feel very uneasy about this, but the fact that none of the other RN's mention it at all surprises me. Is there something I don't know?
Anyone have any comments or suggestions?
