Home Health Aide Skills and Documentation

  •   3/22/2018
  •   Jnon Griffin, RN, MHA, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H, HCS-C

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.
