OASIS quandry


I own a small home health agency. Our operating system has recently began giving feedback on how questions are answered. My nurses have a hard time with the ADL questions when patients live alone without caregivers. Patients may walk with a cane or walker and are scored as a fall risk yet they answer questions such as grooming, upper and lower body dressing with a "0" knowing that the patients do these things themselves. I need examples of how to get my nurses to take into account the "safely" part of the performance of ADLs. Thank you.
