Staff Supervision

Staff Supervision in Residex is a feature that permits the nurse to document and track direct supervision of unlicensed staff performing a delegated skill or service, a state requirement in many settings.  Even if not required, some providers may consider it a best practice to document supervision of unlicensed staff.  Once a staff supervision has been marked complete, users will be prompted for the next due date;  once entered, nurses can receive a notification or reminder to perform the next scheduled supervision.
