HELP. I'm a nursing student trying to write a learning issue on LTC admission paperwork, including Medicare and Medicaid paperwork. So far I have: · Planning in advance for your medical treatment

· Philosophy statement regarding treatment issues

· Policy on advanced directives

· Admission policy

· Application for admission

· Pre-admission medical information

· Medical report

· Financial questionnaire

· PASRR

 

What other admission paperwork is required? TIA

Most nurses only take care of the nursing paperwork and then the social worker/ business office/ admit coordiantor does the other financial info.

There is:

Initial Nursing Assessment/ Skin Assessment

Consent to treat

Advanced Directives

Fall Risk Assessment

Braden Scale

Dehydration Assessment

Pain Assessment

Dietary Communication

Infection Assessment if they come with Abx

And last but not least doibg an intial MAR

The stuff you have listed should be done before admission which is done by Admission Coordinator/ Social Services. Nurses are usually not involved in that stuff.

Sounds like all that info is in the admission packet given out to family at the time of admission. To have you getting into them in any great depth may just be 'busy' work for you, the student.

Yeah, looking at those topics (PASRR, financials, admin ap) that's social work or the admission coordinator's job.

The floor nurse does NOT get involved in any of those (financial?? seriously?). Medicare and Medicaid information is most definitely not something routinely done by nsg.

Also some of that info gets disseminated even earlier by a hospital discharge planner.

to sunny - you forgot that wonderful Wound Assessment form and initial care plan!:banghead:

This might not be what the student needs, but as a MDS Coordinator, I did a TON of admissions with all the nursing paperwork included. One thing I almost always had to fight for was the specific insulin sliding scale for the patient. The MAR always said something like "give insulin SQ per sliding scale." If you don't have the specific sliding scale, this doesn't help. :no:

So, I would just call the nurse who did the DC paperwork & she/he would fax it over for me. Problem solved. :)
