Abstract
  • The development and evaluation of a system for the handling, maintenance and transcription of nursing home patient care orders are described. Before implementation of this documentation system, the study nursing home was found to be out of compliance with various state, federal and professional practice standards related to patient care orders. System implementation, with strict monitoring, extensive staff development and ancillary personnel education, both in the classroom and the patient care areas, occurred in two phases over a twelve month period. Following implementation of the system, there were no areas found to be out of compliance with state or federal standards in patient care order documentation. It is concluded that implementation of the documentation system can provide control of nursing home patient care orders, can be adopted with relative ease by both Intermediate Care Facilities and Skilled Nursing Facilities, and can provide methods to improve the performance of nursing home providers in all patient care order areas.
