Our owner's are extremely well versed in home health with both of our owners having over 20 years of experience in home health care. One of the facets that make the Center for Physical Therapy Services, Inc. different from our competitors is the fact that we can guide our agencies through the clear or murky waters of the rehabilitation portion of care. What can our staff do for our contracted home health agencies? Our staff can offer the following services:
- Staff Training: Training to Agency Nurses/Staff regarding what a Physical Therapist, a Occupational Therapist, a Speech Therapist and what a Social Worker roles are in the home health setting.
- In-Service Education: Training with Agency staff to include Certified Home Health Aides, Staffing Coordinators, and newly hired professional/para-professional staff.
- Quality Assurance (QA): We can come to your agency and QA/review your charts, specifically looking at the rehabilitation/social work component of the patient's charts. We look at how the MD orders, how the Agency 485, how the nursing notes fit in the scheme of the therapy/social work clinical notes. We will look at things like: therapy evaluations done within a 48 hour time frame, MD Orders that qualify specific therapy interventions, we look at negative documentation, the mechanics of the required therapy re-assessments (30-Day, 13th Day Visit, and the 19th Day Visit), the level of therapy supervision with regards to licensed therapy assistants, cross reference clinical documentation between the various disciplines, and much more. Our QA focus is that of both a Technical QA as well as a Clinical QA.
- Supervisory Visits: We can help our agencies with complying with the 14-day required supervision for the Certified Home Health Aides (CHHA). Our RPTs and OTRs can coordinate with our contracted agencies and the assigned CHHA and thereby render the required supervisory visit. We are also able to help the CHHAs with understanding how to facilitate walking, ROM exercises, safe and proper transfer training and more.
- Agency Education on when it is appropriate to refer to the various therapy disciplines and the social workers. We know that often agencies do not utilize or under-utilize certain disciplines, specifically the occupational therapists, the speech therapists, and the social workers. We believe that this under-utilization is done because of the lack of understanding on what each specific rehab professional is able to do within their specific scope of practice.
