Overview:As every resident is different, it is essential to properly assess their needs and determine when and how they should get started on a Restorative Care Program that best fits them. Through several examples from MDS 3.0, this program discusses the common ways a person may enter a Restorative Care Program, and explains how the Program Coordinator, with inputs from other restorative care team members, can conduct the necessary screenings to ensure the resident starts on a program at the appropriate level.
Once a residents Restorative Care Program is started, the persons condition and progress is measured, documented and regularly assessed. This program shows RNAs how to keep accurate, clear and complete documentation, focusing in particular on the Restorative care plan, Activities Sheet and flowchart.
