Therapy screens?Register Today!
- by lpnbecky123 Dec 13, '07:angryfireAnyone having trouble getting OT/PT/ST screens done? I have requested screens & after about a week or 2 I find that the therapists have not even looked at the resident. What do you guys feel is a realistic time for the screens to be completed. I feel that they should be done ASAP. Any thoughts about this? me:trout:therapy

If you are having this much difficulty, talk to your Director of Nursing, if this is a dead end, talk to your Administrator. I don't think they would like to shell out money for CMP's because of a therapist who didn't do their job efficiently.
