As you review the care plan history, take note on how care plan documentation lends itself towards an integrated team care approach. While history shows that fundamental care plans were initially used as care guidelines for volunteers without medical experience or training; you will see that it later develops into one of today’s most valuable instruments for quality measures, nursing home payment, and state inspections. Let’s take a look at the historical care plan development over the centuries and its relevance in supporting continuity of care. 31st BC (3100 BC to 3001 BC) -15th Century
Greetings! I am looking for insight on how to develop meaningful goals for resident Care plans. I am having difficulty striking a balance between having a valuable long term goal, and having a measurable goal. A generic measurable goal such as: "A resident will participate in ____ activities ____ times per week through the review date" is easy to measure, but really feels more like an intervention than a goal. And picking a number of times to participate in a particular activity feels arbitrary to me. Out of all the ways of spending time, why is this one more valuable than others?
