Meeting outlines

  1. Im a new DON in a long term care facility. I am wondering if any seasoned DON's have an outline by which you run your infection control, wound and weight meetings? I would appreciate any guidance in creating my own or if you have a good one you would share. Thanks!!

    I would suggest searching the CMS and DADS websites for QA best practices. They have great information geared toward just what you need. When using forms with any new position I have learned not to create my own forms unless my Corporate nurse has specifically stated they 1. Don't have one. 2. They approve it and sign something stating that. ( Even if you only have a email reply saying okay.)

    Absolutely!

    Esp keeping the higher-uppers in the loop.

    Might you have a corp sister facility? Do you belong to any local DON group that you can tap into?

    The weekly meeting requires Long term care facilities to discuss Infection control, wounds, weights, falls, restraints, restorative ect. ( depending on state). I have all Care plan nurses attend, nurses in charge of individual departments, dietary, wound nurse, safety nurse, plus administrator, social services and charge nurses for each nurses station and discuss the residents that are in review for the MDS. This way we have everything covered with all involved disciplines and we all know what is going on with the residents. Hope that helps..can give more details if you need :0
