Assessments

Enter an Assessment

Assessments are an important part of resident care.  RTasks offers customizable assessments and effective ways to manage assessments that assist in meeting regulatory requirements.

Users with Role 32 are able to document clinical Assessments.  The ability to perform non-clinical assessments (leisure, dietary, and Bio/History) can be granted to non-nursing providers;  contact ResiDex support staff for assistance in doing so.

Assessments & Service Plan Links

If configured, any user with the ability to record assessments and schedule services will be able to schedule services while conducting an assessment, ensuring you keep both in sync.

Contact Residex Support for assistance in creating links from assessment items to services.

Assessment History

The Assessment History button allows users to view all assessments completed for a resident, add a note, print, and/or delete an instance of an assessment.

Assessment Snippets

Snippets are bits of text - typically a sentence or two - that RTasks users can select and use in a given note field.  Assessment snippets are located in the note field associated with any assessment item, and can create efficiencies and clarity in documentation.  Users are still able to add resident-specific data as well.  Users with Role 32 (Assessments) can add or delete assessment snippets.

Resident Bio/History

The Bio/History assessment offers users an opportunity to enter resident biographical data and personal preferences and share that with caregivers.  Information in the Bio/History assessment is entered in a similar fashion to other Residex assessments.  Once a bio/history assessment is marked complete, it can be printed out and provided to staff, or sent electronically via RTasks to caregivers to review/acknowledge, and reference as needed to provide high quality, individualized care.  Bio/History is an assessment type that can be delegated to RTask users to perform who do not have clinical roles assigned.  

ResiDex Fall Risk Tool

Assessing and minimizing the risk of falling is an important nursing activity and a common quality management concern. ResiDex offers a fall risk assessment tool developed by the Missouri Alliance for Health Care  (MAHC 10) that offers several advantages:

  • It is a tested and validated tool
  • It is integrated into data already entered into ResiDex (diagnoses, medications, fall incidents, assessment items, etc.)
  • It is updated with each assessment or clinical review
  • It can easily be updated and printed as a subset assessment

Suppressing Assessments

Residents in Independent Living settings do not require the clinical oversight that those in assisted living or memory care settings do.  ResiDex Users are able to turn off or "suppress" reminders for assessments or MD orders for these independent residents.  

Vaccination Documentation

Resident vaccination status can be entered, reviewed, and updated as part of the Clinical Assessment.

Users with Role 32 are able to document clinical assessments, including the vaccination status.
