    Dr. orders for OTC meds

    I feel very incompetent in even asking this question but had little to no training to home health. Is it required to have dr. orders for items such as tylenol or stool softener in the home health field? Please provide me the regulations that require or not required info is if possible. Lots of debate going on in our office right now.

    Start up of a free clinic

    I do have our attorney working on the disclaimer for nurse protection. Quess I was really hoping for some ideas on setting up the clinic. Must not be a topic of interest though.

    Start up of a free clinic

    I hope someone can help me with this. I am the administrator of a Home Health agency. However, my CEO has asked me to research and start the process of opening a free outreach clinic. This would only be V/S and simple nursing assessment. Lots of education and medication management. I am not finding anything online to help with this. I want a good disclaimer for my RN that will be working the clinic. Any other advice or resources would be extremely welcomed. Thank you in advance

    breaking down charts

    We do computer charting, but its amazing how much paperwork is still in the office charts. When we breakdown the chart, all Dr. orders, including referrals, F2F, signed 485's, are kept. Pretty much anything with someones signature is kept. H & P along with demographic sheet are also kept. These are all put into a manilla envelope with client name and dates of service written on the outside. Then stored in the office for 1 year. after that it goes to outside storage for 10 years (longer than required) This is probably all over kill as everything with signature has been scanned into computer chart, but I am old school and can not force myself to have a paper with dr. signature on it being shredded! Hope this helps some

    When is Dr. order required?

    I am needing to verify when a dr. order is required in home health and when its not. We have a client that requested our aide put ace wraps on her LE. the aide placed them and notified the primary nurse that she did this. We have had discussions at length whether this requires a dr. order or not. Can someone point me in the right direction of finding this type of info Thanks in advance for any help Tammy

    Bag barrier paper

    I don't know the state reg on a rolling bag but would think the same principale would apply, that there needs to be a barrier between bag and surface in the home.

    How many employees are needed for 100 patients?

    We aren't as large as 100 clients but from my experience I would say you ned minimum of 5 full time RN's. Good luck with that contract, that will be great for your agency. Tammy

    Bag barrier paper

    What is everyone using for the barrier paper for their home health bags. We have been using infant scale covers cut in half but are just about out. Need to reorder or would like it if I had another option??
