"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 great form is used by various types of community based care facilities to report an accident, incident, and/or injury to a resident. This detailed form takes the care provider step-by-step through essential information needed when this type of occurrence takes place.  This form also contains recheck information.  

If the accident, incident or injury causes a legal action to be filed, then the information on this form could be very instrumental in showing the steps the care provider took after the event to ensure for the resident's well being.

The public would be surprised to see how many lawsuits are brought against a care facility due to a resident's involvement in an activity.  It is essential for every activity director and volunteer to ensure resident(s) safety at all times.
These rules have been updated numerous times over a 20 year period.  Every time a lawsuit or accident happened that the staff of ProvidersWeb became aware of, we updated the safety rules accordingly to prevent the event from happening to anyone else.  The process of discovering a risk, and creating policies and procedures to advert the risk like safety rules, is called risk management.
