Templates?

Can you copy and paste any templates, or link that can help improve documentation speed? Trying to find a way to reduce the absurd amount of time I spend charting, and would like to focus on actual patient care. I do SOC, ROC, DC, regular SN visits, and Recerts.

I actually made my own templates when I worked home health based on the documentation requirements of the agency I worked for. Some places have more assessment/ check boxes and others have more narrative.

The advantage of doing your own template is that you can capture your verbiage and lay things out in a way that makes sense to you.

I also use "sticky notes" (the app) on my computer with specific info that I use frequency and copy/ paste from the "sticky notes".
