Complimentary Webinar: Nursing Home Best Practices for Charting, Care Plans, and Incident Reports
On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, Kopon Airdo, LLC presented our Complimentary Webinar, Nursing Home Best Practices for Charting, Care Plans, and Incident Reports. While nursing home documents should be the key to a winning defense, too often, they end up being used against the facility when a lawsuit is filed. Errors in documentation can sabotage a nursing home’s defense even when staff provided exceptional care.
Mollie Werwas and Matthew Liebert discussed the best practices, from a legal perspective, for documenting events that occur in the nursing home. Topics covered included:
- How to chart on resident care and treatment in an accurate, timely, and consistent manner
- How to draft Care Plans that address resident needs without creating potential liability
- How to prepare Incident Reports and Witness Statements that aid in the facility’s defense
- How to develop Policies and Procedures for consistent documentation standards throughout the facility
