Attended the Murfreesboro, TN conference this week. We talked about some things that are not yet in place with Therap – activity scheduling, the ability for a nurse to approve a completed MAR with data on it, and the controlled substance log. We discovered that the controlled substance log will be in place, possibly by next week so we were really excited about that. We tried looking into the staff scheduling in Therap to use as our activity log but there is not a place to document planned activities and it is really staff based instead of individual based. We also looked at the calendar, but if you have 90 individuals in one program then it would be a nightmare to try to read the calendar of events. So it’s back to the drawing board on that one. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know. We looked into different options of proving that our nurses had reviewed and approved the completed MAR at the end of every month. We have several options that we can choose from including just doing a T-log to say it was approved. I think the option we are going to try is adding a “medication” to the MAR labeled “RN approval” that is administered once a month on the last day of the month. Once again, if anyone has another idea please share them with me. All and all it was a good experience at the conference even if everything didn’t go as scheduled. It is good to have trainers who can change up their routine at anytime!
