    Hi, I am not new to the site, but been away for awhile. Just wanted to start a discussion about Care plans, if anyone is interested.
    We recently had our state survey, and the came down hard on our activities department. Our AD is 20 yrs old, and has no prior experience. Her activities are somewhat dead, and everyone sees this, except our Administrator
    Well, we were sited w/ 3 F tags on activities, and I got an F tag for careplanning activities. Her charting is lacking in detail and there are only 3 big events that residents w/ cognitive impairment can attend, well actually 2....Music 1 time a week, and b-day parties once a month. Then we have Bingo 2 times a week and cooking for the oriented residents. Well, how do I individualize careplans for the cognitively impaired residents, or the oriented ones for that matter, when there really aren't any activities going on? In her notes she rights that she does one on ones w/ the residents that don't come to activities, but then she doesn't say what the one on ones are. Our administrator, took her side in the matter, and says that she does the activities, but said my careplans are generic. I showed the administrator where her note for one resident said that the resident enjoyed laying in bed and sleeping....***** Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do, before the state revisits, what to write in my plan of correction and how I can individualize a careplan on activities that really aren't getting done? Letting her do her own careplan is out of the question, we only have one computer.......
    Please give me some feedback.............
