Patient education/ skills checklist

by chelsea52 chelsea52 (New) New


Wondering if anyone can share what they may use as a sort of checklist to document what education pt has completed, specifically regarding teaching bowel, bladder management. We will also include skin, autonomic dysreflexia and anticoags. At our facility, we are having trouble with keeping track of what exactly the prior nurse has had the pt do regarding learning own bowel routine and bladder management. Obviously, we teach in steps so this is ongoing over course of at least a few weeks, and easy to lose track where the patient is in the learning process.

we have a little sheet that we keep on the patient's wall called the tree of knowledge and on each three nut you can write the date and what you educated about so you can keep up with it!
