Nurse Med Setup/Review

RTasks EMARS will not only allow users to document the administration or declination of scheduled medications and unscheduled medications, but will first allow the nurse or manager to document that medications have been setup or reviewed/verified prior to the administration. With the ResiDex configuration option "Recap Med Setup" (i.e.Verify or Pour)" turned on, you will be able to mark each medication as being set up or reviewed/verified prior to administration by staff.

Using the campus Special Verbiage screen, you can customize what you want this Setup/Review step to be called.  To change the verbiage of this:

  • Log into Desktop ResiDex
  • Go to the Setup Tab
  • Search for Verbiage and select Campus Special Verbiage
  • Find the line that says 'Base Verbiage - Pour' and change it to your specific Verbiage: Pour, Setup, Verify, etc.
  • Close the screen
  • If the Campus Special Verbiage has not yet been activated, you will get a prompt to turn on the verbiage - confirm you want to do this

Medication Charting History

RTask's EMAR allows users to easily view details about the administration of each medication.  'Medication Charting History' allows nurses, managers (Role 11), and supervisors (Role 13) to review the medication 'recap' for a given resident to:

  • view the dates and times of med administration including the staff who administered
  • view medications that have been refused, declined, or 'missed'
  • add a comment to any med recap, adding additional information as needed

Review Administered 'PRN' Meds

When "as needed" medications are administered, some states require documentation that a licensed nurse has reviewed them.  RTasks E-Mar offers a convenient solution.

The "Review As Needed Medication" option will allow an RN or LPN to mark as reviewed those as-needed medications that were administered.

Review Declined Meds

When medications are declined/skipped (not given), nurses may wish to review those medications.  RTasks E-Mar offers a convenient option.

The "Review Declined Medication" option will allow an RN or LPN to mark as reviewed those medications that were skipped or declined.

Review Policies

Policies and Procedures are guidelines that serve to define expected procedures and practices.  Once a policy is published, Staff can review the policy in RTasks, acknowledge it, and so agree to follow the guidelines.  

Policies can be linked to services and viewed as a link in that service.  There are also policy reports that can be enabled for staff to review when needed.
