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. However, there are skills that need to be developed by the Aide to enable them to work closely with their Supervisory nurse, and communicate what is happening with their patients.
Healthcare organizations are doing everything they can to provide better care for their patients.

This Defensible Clinical Documentation series will educate each clinical discipline on how they can improve their documentation skills, maintain compliance, and provide better patient care! This session is focused on Therapy Documentation in Homecare.
