"I" careplansRegister Today!
- by crissrn27 Jun 3, '09Anyone using the "I" careplans at there SNF? I am interested in changing ours from the medical model to this, but not sure how exactly to do it. I have written a couple of careplan narratives in the I format, but I'm not sure if this is the right way to go. Any ideas?

- Jun 4, '09 by achot chaviSorry, but what is an "I" careplan, I thought they should be patient-oriented and not I oriented.

- Jun 9, '09 by KristenLPNI have been using "I" Care Plans for the last four years in my facility. We all have, we own 7 homes in the Southern Illinois region. I like it. It is as if it is in the first person and more person centered, as opposed to the regular "medical" side. It is as if they are telling their story to staff and their families reading the care plan. So this is not new to me at all. I have trained multiple incoming MDS Coordinators using the I plan. It is more of a pioneering approach. Surveyors loved it when I incorporated the CP's four years ago.

- Sep 26, '12 by LTCNSI've been writing "I" care plans for a few years now. I like an individualized care plan as opposed to a generic, canned care plan and to me personally, the "I" care plans are more descriptive of the individual patient/resident/elder's needs and problems. They paint a better picture IOW.
