  1. Comprehensive Care Plans Tiresa Parker, R.N., C Quality Improvement Compliance Specialist

  2. F 279 The facility must develop a comprehensive care plan for each resident that includes measurable objectives and timetables to meet a resident’s medical, nursing, mental and psychosocial needs that are identified in the comprehensive assessment.

  3. The Care Plan Should develop quantifiable objectives for the highest level of functioning the resident may be expected to attain, based on the comprehensive assessment.

  4. Who Should Be Involved? • Interdisciplinary team (IDT) • Resident • Resident’s family • Surrogate or representative • Physician

  5. Quality Improvement Probes • Does the care plan address: • Needs • Strengths • Preferences identified in the comprehensive resident assessment

  6. Care Planning Guides • The Interdisciplinary Team should show evidence in the resident assessment protocol (RAP) summary or clinical record of the following: • The resident’s status in triggered rap areas; • The facility’s rationale for deciding whether to proceed with care planning; and • Evidence that the facility considered the development of care plan interventions for all RAPs triggered by the MDS.

  7. Care Planning Guides [cont.] • Interdisciplinary means that the professional disciplines, as appropriate, will work together to provide the greatest benefit to the resident. • Was interdisciplinary expertise utilized to develop a plan to improve the resident’s functional abilities?

  8. Care Planning Guides [cont.] • Does staff make an effort to schedule care plan meetings at the best time of the day for residents and their families? • How does the staff communicate this information to the resident and their family?

  9. Care Planning Guides [cont.] • Does facility staff attempt to make the process understandable to the resident and family? • What happens if residents have brought questions or concerns about their care to the attention of facility staff?

  10. Goals for Care Planning • Increase the staff’s knowledge of the resident; • Increase the staff’s knowledge on what to do regarding resident’s care; • Incorporate care plans into ongoing resident chart documentation;

  11. Goals for Care Planning [cont.] • Simplify and individualize the care planning process; • Involve all staff; • Develop a functional resident- centered care plan that is actually used by the staff.

  20. Problem Statement [cont.] • Signs and Symptoms • This is preceded by the words “as evidenced by” Example: Alteration in skin integrity r/t refusal to turn due to pain r/t end stage bone ca as evidenced by stage 4, 5cm x 5cm sacral wound

  21. Problem Statement [cont.] • If the resident has the potential to develop the problem, then only the first two parts are used Example: Risk for alteration in skin integrity r/t to pain and refusing to turn due to end stage bone cancer

  22. Problem Statement –Right or Wrong and WHY • Alteration in mood r/t diagnosis of depression • Risk for falls • Bowel incontinence r/t end stage Alzheimer’s Disease evidenced by daily incontinent stools

  25. Goal Statement • Goals can be long or short term • Goals should have an observable, specific behavior • Goals should be specific in content and time • Goals should be attainable
