Good documentation

Good documentation has many advantages.

One of them is to assist in good communication. Another is keep the Health Department at bay by ensuring that you are complying with the Government Standards by providing professional documentation to meet residents' needs.

When it comes to activities, fine documentation makes good practice. For instance, very often facilities do not have enough recreation staff and when they go on leave mayhem may ensue with other staff members (nurses, volunteers) trying to coordinate activities lest the residents start to get restless.

I have made a small sample of 'D.T. Working Instructions & Procedures' (see Forms & Templates) which is based on the one I use. You may download this document and adjust/change to suit the management requirements of your facility. I hope you make good use of it.
