I've replaced an Activity Director who retired. At this facility they have been documenting lunch (only in the large restaurant style dining room where residents are independent) as a social activity in the activity participation record. Is this a practice that happens at other facilities?
Hello all I'm in need of everyone's professional collective wisdom on this one... Presently, my staff are utilizing a very detailed excel spreadsheet that lists all of the activity programs our residents may possibly engage in during any given day within our home each month--there are even additional slots for special impromptu events. This includes spiritual care, group programming [large and small], 1:1, independent/self-directed, staff led, etc. We utilize single letter codes to indicate the residentsâ€™ degree of involvement and have additional spaces for further documentation on the bottom backside of each resident's participation page. Although I really appreciate the detailed insight this form of charting gives me as I track and trend participation, update care plans, and dictate on resident involvement, it's remarkably time consuming for my staff. I'm wondering what other charting methods people are utilizing electronically, manually, or otherwise that has proven to be effective and efficient. So grateful for any feedback you can provide me with!
1,836 downloadsThis form should be use to track and document your residents participation in your activity program. The form uses a coding system to note the participation level & the residents reactions, all vital information when designing a plan of care for your residents. Be sure and keep your records up-to-date, keep 3 months of records close at hand for State Surveyors. They usually ask for 4-5 resident files to base your program on, this is a random choosing unless there were complaints for a certain resident.Free
