Quality Assurance/Audit Tools or Forms for LTC or ALF



I just got promoted as the Regional Clinical Services Director for our 15 facility Assisted Living/Memory Care company. It is a new position and I have been in it for about 2 weeks and it was lonnnnnnnnnnng overdue.

I have grown really concerned with some of our basic systems not being either implemented or fully executed in our facilities. We have seen an increase in citations over the last year, which I now know is because of the facilities not properly rolling out corporate systems.

One of the things I want to do, is ensure that my monthly to bimonthly facility visits are focused, have a purpose and over time will yield positive results.

I want to know if anyone has any audit forms or facility visit forms which I can use (hey I am not trying to reinvent the wheel) and add specifics for our company.

The areas of focus are:

Resident Care

Assessments (timeliness, completion)

Charting (I have been horrified with what I have seen...or should I say the lack there of)

Policy Implementation and Execution

I hope there's a form that I can track concerns, accolades, progress and need for corrective action.

Please let me know.

Since the assisted living regs are quite different from LTC, you might want to post this in the AL section

Specializes in Long term care-geriatrics.

Check Brigs for any forms. They will also have state regulations and forms to go with this. I don't know what state you are in, but in NC the AL the med techs pass the medications and do the documentation. They do not know what they are doing. You may need to do some inservicing and monitoring their work closely.
