Clinical Setup

Documents / Attachments Setup

Attachments or Links are typically PDF documents that are signed, scanned, and are intended to be linked to a resident, prospect or staff member's record.  

Before using Attachments / Links in RTasks, some initial setup is required.  This setup allows users to determine from which screen they can access that attachment type, as well as what access caregivers have to these attachments.  To perform the setup, contact ResiDex support staff;  they can assist with this inital setup.

Resident Note Type Setup

Specifying note types allows users to organize or catalog resident notes and more easily find them.  Notes of a type can then be pulled together into a report (e.g. Care Conference notes or Therapy notes) entered for a resident over a specified period of time. 

Certain note types can be set as "Admin Only" and have limited visibility to non-admin users. 

RTasks' Structured Notes feature can be used to create an outline of required elements for staff to follow when entering notes of that type.  Examples of note types for which structured elements might be helpful include Care Conference notes, On-call notes, or perhaps a Therapy or Hospice note.  

Users who are Managers (Role 11) or Supervisors (Role 13) can create and edit Note Types and Structured Notes.

Vital Sign Parameters

Specific parameters can be set up for most vital sign services, alerting or notifying the nurse or supervisor when a scheduled vital sign has been entered that falls outside an appropriate range. These parameters can be set across the database, but can also be modified by each client/resident to accommodate individual needs.

Users with the 411 Administrator role can enter campus-wide parameters via the Global Service List.
