"I have been involved in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facility Administration for over 30 years. I LOVE your website- the info is easy to use, and comprehensive. I typically write all of my own policies, procedures, forms etc. but since finding and joining Providers Web...I have so much more time to Direct our Operations....We have 7 licensed Homes for the Aged, Assisted Living Homes in the state of Michigan - a total of +/- 700 older persons, many with diagnoses of dementia. Just wanted to say thank you for making this information available, at such a reasonable cost!"

This informational document explains the need for reporting accidents, incidents and/or injuries that requires medical attention.  

Excerpt:
Residential Care Assisted Living Facilities differ from nursing homes in that, in a nursing home or hospital, the medical professional is giving his or her medical opinion.  Care Providers in our industry are considered non-medical, and therefore, caregivers should not speculate on the resident's condition... Accident Incident Injury Reports
The normal care standard is for the residential care home or assisted living facility to have an ongoing care plan.  Significant changes in a resident's physical, social, and mental condition need to be documented and brought to the attention of the attending physician, other health service providers and the responsible party so that the care plan adjusted accordingly to the resident's needs.  

All direct care staff involved with that resident should have access to the care plan.  Family members and the residents' responsible parties should participate in the Appraisal Needs and Service Plan, which specify what the plans of care are for that resident.

Excerpt:
Once we have completed the assessment process then we can create a plan of care.
