Kareen I work in a 45 bed home in Victoria. When I first started the job over three years ago I had to fill in attendance forms and hated it...for me a waste of time. Funnily enough I cannot remember why but after simplyfiying the records(still a pain in the neck to do) I went to management, discussed the whole thing and now do not do it but do a little report each month reporting what they like to do(which I had to do anyway) on half the residents each month, a 3 monthly overview and make sure history on residents is pretty up to date. This way of reporting has passed through 2 Accreditation visits and the whole thing is now worthwhile doing and easy. I felt reporting on who attended each day was silly for elderley people and a proper waste of my time where as now the little monthly summary in our computerized progress notes seems to satisfy everyone. Hope this helps. Judy.
