A Patient Care Record Can Improve Your Practice

The Penn Care healthcare recruitment agency can provide you with a patient care record for your home health care agency. The records will include: age, sex and date of birth of the patient, medications that have been prescribed, any special needs that the patient may have, and other information to help your patient care agency give the best possible patient care. This information is kept on file at the local hospital and will make finding a patient very easy for your agency and the patients. The patient care record helps the nurses, doctors and other staff members to know what the patient needs and can easily order supplies that are needed for their care.

In order to get a copy of the patient care record, your agency needs to request it from your local hospital. The hospital may require an individual to fax or mail in the necessary documents or they may simply issue a notarized authorization. The notarized authorization should have the information that the agency requires such as name, address, date of birth and social security number of the person that the patient may be receiving services from. If you have a home health care agency, you will also need a signed written statement from the patient that states that the individual understands the contents of the PCR along with the information that they have provided. If you have a home health care agency, the appropriate form for the patient to fill out may be faxed to you as well.

Once you have obtained all of the necessary documents from the hospital, you will need to locate the patient care records. These records are kept in the health care agency’s database and are updated on a regular basis. If you choose, you can have the records scanned and converted into a digital format. This will allow you to have a paperless health care record and will make retrieving the information much easier. You will also have access to patient contacts, vital signs and other medical information that are pertinent to the care of your patient.

There are many benefits of a patient care record. One benefit is to ensure accurate and current information. This way you will know if a medication is causing an allergic reaction or whether you should switch medications. It is also important to ensure that the procedures and tests have been done correctly and completely. If you have a health care record for a patient, you will have a record of their medical history and this could help prevent the death of a patient while being able to give advice to the attending physician on how to treat a patient.

If you choose not to utilize a patient care record, it is important that you know how to create one. This can be as simple as going to your local hospital and asking them if they have a patient care record and filling it out. Some hospitals have the option of creating the medical records online or via facsimile. If you choose to go with a facsimile, you will need a driver’s license or state issued identification card. You will also need a personal Computer with Internet access and a password. You will have to pay a nominal fee for each patient and each page of the patient care record that you want to download.

If you do decide to use a patient care record, make sure that all of your staff members are trained to fill out the form. Also make sure that any patients who are hospitalized have their own form to fill out or have their name entered into the system. It can be very beneficial to the health care of your patients if you implement a patient care record system.
