Resident Info Setup

Case Manager

The "Case Manager" field allows you to specify a nurse or other individual as a resident's case manager.

Case Manager Nurse

Some states require tracking Case Manager Nurses for residents; this can be done by using the "Case Manager Nurse" field on the Residnet Profile Screen.

Case Manager Setup

Two ways to enter case managers in ResiDex.

Code Status

A person's Code Status is a code specified in advance which describes that person's health care preferences in the event that their heart stops or their lungs fail. Examples of Code Statuses include CPR (meaning, CPR may be performed if possible,) DNR (Do Not Resuscitate), DNI (Do Not Intubate.)

A resident's Code Status must be recorded in the Code Status field on the Resident Profile. The Code Status is required and cannot be left blank; it will will automatically default to CPR.

Disable Profile Photos

If you wish to not load Resident photos on the resident profile screen, this setup is easy.

Discharge Tracking

ResiDex has the ability to let users track where residents are discharged to when they have been marked 'discharged.'

Resident Links

Resident attachments allow facilities to keep a digital copy of forms directly linked to Residents entered into Desktop ResiDex. The links can be grouped into various types to meet your organizational needs.  

Attachment setup will vary per facility because of the database environment. Please call or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ResiDex Support to do the initial setup of attachments.

Resident Pictures (Photos)

ResiDex allows a user to attach pictures to each of their residents' profiles.  The picture will not only appear on the Resident Profile screen, but will also show up on many paper forms and in RTasks.  Having visibility to the resident picture will verify the correct individual is being served and assist with orienting new staff.

Before using Resident pictures, a setup process needs to be completed.  If your Photo button on the Resident Profile Screen is not activated/working  please contact us for assistance.
