Scope and Practice

Recommended Posts

I recently started a new job at the hospital on the inpatient psych unit. We currently have an OT that does an assessment and then I complete the back page. They were tagged once before for the activity director being the only one to fill out the assessment. I was wondering if  anyone knew if we had to have an OT doing assessments in conjunction with ours.

 

What is our scope and practice for activity directors? I have tried looking it up but haven't had any luck.

 

 

THanks!

Tiffany

It's an initial assessment. The OT comes in with a 4 page assessment. They fill out the first 3 pages and the back page is labeled for "activity director". We also have the same 4 page assessment that just has activity director labeled on it. We are just trying to figure out if the OT has to do it first and then have me complete the 4th page or if I am allowed/certified to complete the entire packet.

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
