I have a question about travel charts. Is it the norm in Home Health to have a chart to carry on each visit which contains the 485, med list, labs, prior visit notes and any other pertinent information? I previously we worked for a hospital based home health and these were provided and kept very up to date. I have been working for a month for a very large home health and so far have not had any of this information. I am lucky to have a 485 with me. I work part time and paid per visit. I am finding this very challenging! I do not know what the patient has been taught, what the prior labs were, or what the previous nurse did while in the home. I have only been there 1 month and hate to rock the boat! I feel this information is necessary for continuity of care. I still work prn for the other agency on some weekends and am seriously considering going back part time because of this. Just wanted to know what the protocol is for other agencies. I would appreciate your feedback. Thanks.
