2 hours for the paperwork is ridiculous!! No offense to you!
I basically "know" the OASIS by heart now, so I usually am able to get all the info I need from the pt just in my course of meeting them, finding out how they got into the hospital or came to be referred in the first place, and my assessment. I flip through it quickly just to be sure I didn't forget anything.
I call the doc, I only fax if I have to.
If there was no PT or other disciplines ordered upfront on the original referral, then I must complete a PT referral form. But more than one discipline can go on one form.
If it is on the referral, all I do is leave a vm to the discipline secretary.
For a HHA, I must also do a careplan.
We just went to carepaths so now instread of one form we do 3, but it's is all check boxes, pretty fast and easy. It is a carepplan overview, a tracking form, one line, and our admit note.
Med sheet of course, supply requests, medicare second payor form, consent, falls eval checklist, wound care sheet of needed.
But, my new agency has an awesome OASIS which includes everything that would go on the 485, so all goals, visit freq, etc goes on there it is sooo easy, no seperate notes!! All the new agency woud do is
Medicare second payor form
IF needed, a multipdiscipline referral form
HHA care pplan
Everything but everything in both of these agencies is a check off list whenever it is humanly possible. The care plaths are so comprehensive, sometimes I do not even have to write a narrative at all!
Sounds like your agency needs to streamline some of the paperwork for you!!
