Join us for this educational webinar that will help you learn the right Pain Management solutions and improve your understanding of Opioids.
In the final installment of the Clinical Documentation Series, our focus turns to the Aides. Unlike many of the other disciplines who provide care in the home, Aides many times are present the most, but have the smallest amount of actual documentation to do.

Do you understand what your regular visit documentation needs to be audit proof? It’s not just a skilled need. How your clinician’s document will determine if you can defend your length of stay decisions and medical necessity of the patient. The sixth session in this series, led by Kristi Bajer, RN, MSN of Operacare, provides education on how to ensure that the care you are providing is what it supposed to be, when it is supposed to be, and that the care is reflected accurately and correctly in your documentation.
