Staff Supervision

Whether required by state licensure rules or conducted as a best practice, the ability to document supervision of unlicensed, direct-care staff performing delegated nursing services is an important practice.  Staff Supervision can now easily be documented in RTasks.

Viewing and Entering Staff Supervisions in RTasks

Navigate to Profiles > Staff > Staff Profile > Staff Supervision and select.

Users will see the following:

  • The option of performing a new instance of staff supervision (1)
  • A banner with the date the next supervision is due (2)
  • A summary of scores compiled from previous staff supervisions (3)
  • A Staff Supervision History showing  previous staff supervisions with the name of supervising staff visible as well as comments. (4)
  • Clicking on any single staff supervision performed will open up the details of that supervision.

Documenting a new Staff Supervision

Clicking on the 'Document Supervision' button will open up entry fields for entering a new instance of staff supervision

  1. Enter the service or delegated task that was observed
  2. The current date is defaulted in, but can be edited to an earlier date
  3. Any skill instruction can be documented
  4. Nurse comments can be of a general nature or address actions taken
  5. A check in the box indicates the staff person met expectations, and notes can be added
  6. Set the next date due by entering a date or using the quick select option to select a time period

 

Notifications to upcoming Staff Supervisions can be viewed in the Login Report (Staff Supervisions next 14 days),  by returning to the Staff Profile > Supervisions and viewing the banner with the next due date, or viewing the report such as Staff Supervision Overview.
