Starting on July 1, 2013 we started a new way of documenting on shifts. T-Logs are time consuming and often it is hard to try and spend time charting every day for someone that seems to do many of the same things every day. We as the Therap committee came up with an ISP program that will sum up a typical day/shift called “Shift Report”. This program will replace Low T-Logs, but in emergency situations or certain instances a MED or HIGH T-Log will still need to be completed. If a T-Log needs to be completed it will be very short and to the point. In the program it will tell you when you need to complete a T-Log.
This is one way to try and make our documentation less time consuming with our busy schedules. That way we can spend that much more time with the people we care for.
