Activity Participation Forms - discussion

Recommended Posts

this is what we do at our facility.we print the montly calendar the size of note book paper each resident has their own sheet for that month.then we have four highlighters of different colors. 1-color for refused 1-color for participation 1-color for unavailable 1-color for attended but passive then we record any notes on the back of any activities they do on their own. this works well for us. hope this helps

We are fortunate enough to have a good efficent computer system for all documentation. As I stated on a previous post, I'm really not interested in "forms", I just am SO curious if any of you have ever run into problems with STATE SURVEYS concerning attendence/participation documentation. Specific to attendence were they 'warnings", citations, etc. etc.

Hi! I need examples of documentation forms cna's are filling in when they do "meaningful connections" with residents. Does anyone know if it is required that cna's need to write what they did with a resident and the response in order to comply with the new OBRA changes?

It isn't required that CNA's have a participation log. However, we have now added "Guest Books" in the rooms of our residents who we would like to know how many visits that they are actually involved in. We have all the staff signing the residents guest books including Housekeepers and Maintenance. The residents are enjoying making littel guest books and many who don't need them (those that come to all of the activities) are enjoying them as well. I heard about this at a conference and the speaker was wonderful. It has been a great idea.

I was reading some of the post and would also like ideas for activities. I also work in SNF. I have some forms and ideas but when I took over this position the previous director threw just about everything away so I am flying blind.

Our sister facility got a deficincy (I know that that isn't spelled right) for having residents asleep during activities, our new company policy is to try and wake them once if they fall back asleep they get taken out of the activity. Who know's what state will think of that as far as resident rights go. They also got a warning for having to many "passive" residents in a large group activity.

One of the monthly magazines for activity directors has software that I have been using for several years. It is wonderful!!!!!!!!!! It saves so much time preparing the monthly calendar and your participation records. It also sort residents by interest groups, etc and prints monthly reports. If you have a computer in your department it doesn't cost much and is well worth the investment even if you have to buy it yourself. Just look in the yellow book. It's so simple even those who have little computer experience can use it.

Hello, I would be very interested in how you set up this form. My email is cmichal_99@yahoo.com, I think doing this on the computer is the way to go, quicker and legible. How much time does this save you as opposed to doing it the conventional way. Thanks Carol

 

Hi everyone,

 

I set up a monthly charting form on Microsoft Excel. Each resident has their own form on the computer so all I have to do is click on their name and mark their attendance for the day. Since it doesn't require our initials we can generate it on the computer and then we just print out the sheet at the end of the month and file one in their charts and I keep a copy in my own log book. If you would like I can send you an attachment of the form. Just send me the email address you would like it to go to. I can also walk you through how I do it.

We use the CareTracker system that the CNA's do all of their documenting on. It is set up for activities but requires some redesigning to be the most beneficial. I worked with our IT department to make the program work for us. It makes things easy for my staff and since it is on the network, I can pull the participation logs to review while writing notes and care plans. Another benefit is that nursing and social services can also review participation logs as needed. Our CNA's have also been trained and are assisting us with logging independent activities while they are doing their routine documentation. I pull the logs each quarter and file them but the records can be pulled at a moment's notice. We have been doing this for two years. The state surveyors (who just happen to be in the building at this very moment) always compliment us on our method of documentation.

I to use my monthly calender, much easier everything they do whether its a special activity is listed. I highlight in differant colors to signify which they are if they are active. passive etc. For independent activities I also have a number such 1- tv, 2 - visitor, 3-read or write, 4- tv, etc. This works well and also I put in the day if I have done a one to one with them with lines on the back to provide my comments on the one to ones. Seems to work well for me.

Miguel, I would be interested in seeing your logs. Could you please email them to me at amybelle2000@yahoo.com.

Have a nice day

Thanks,

Amy

 

 

 

I created a three month participation record that is very simple and covers everything, (No highlighting)

 

additionally, we have the resdients Room Visit schedule on the back (3 months at a time) so that is recorded...

 

and...

 

Attached to every residents Participation Record & Room visit log we have that residents Care plan (a copy of the one that is placed in their chart)

 

If anyone would be interested in any of these they are in Microsoft Word format and are very easy to use and change for every quarter.

 

ALSO... I do my monthly calendar in Microsoft word and would be willing to share it with anyone if you want.. all I need is for you to e mail me at

 

msarasa@thevillagehemet.com
