I talked to a number of people at the Provider Administrator Conference about tracking the condition of adaptive equipment. There are several examples of Individual Service Programs for that task that providers have put in the Global Template Library. The Daily Adaptive / Aversive Equipment Checklist is a straightforward way to record basic daily equipment checks. The Adaptive Equipment Inspection takes the approach of developing a broad description of specific features of different types of equipment that need to be checked such as wheelchairs, walkers, bed rails, etc.. As the template is assigned to an individual, for example, with a wheelchair the tasks that do not apply can be deleted. Additional tasks such as acquisition data, repair descriptions and dates can also be added. The ISP approach can provide consistency in when equipment is checked and how it is checked.
Examples in Global Template Library:
