We use a graph for attendance tracking. One for each community. I have put codes at the bottom like BC for book club. There is room for two or three in each little square. In the memory care areas the direct support staff fill them out the same way. Sometimes they put S for sleeping and that is all for the whole day. I did contact the Health Care association to make sure that we really do need to keep attendance on each person each day. They said surveyors can ask for it. I have worked for this facility in activities for eleven years. In that period the state requested to see them once. It seems likes a poor job of reporting what really went on for the day. I checked out your computer program. We use Point Click Care for all charting so this would just be one more thing. Anyone else in this situation?

Hi Ellen
It has been my experience that surveyors do not look at attendance records unless there is a problem with the activities
I do not think you need to keep the attendance records in the chart of the resident
Are used to keep them in a separate book and if asked I would show them
Actually I worked in activities for 20 years and was never asked
If you are interested you could probably use the tucket provided by golden Carers
