On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, Airdo Werwas, 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
