Residents leaving the facility for short term outings or appointments can be 'checked out' by staff when leaving and documented 'checked in' again upon returning. The RTasks Task Manager and Login Report are used to manage the process.
While this can be used for medical appointments, the Referral Appointments feature in RTasks already accomplishes this; the Resident Check-Out / In feature can be helpful for other types of outings, or when resident location needs to be tracked.
Please note that 'checking out' a resident does not place the resident on hold status. The services and meds will still appear on caregiver assignments. Follow the link to instructions on How to put a resident on hold.
