Health Forms 1 - 2 - 3


Monday, August 12, 2013

Health Form 1, 2, and 3 includes a guide to scheduling preventative screening and assessments, the direct observation form and diagnostic review.

The Direct Observation form (Health Form 2) is completed by direct support professionals. The tool asks direct support professionals who interact most directly with individuals on a day-to-day basis to respond to questions about easily observable indicators of health or illness. It does not require that staff make any clinical judgments, only that they observe and record what they see.

The Diagnostic Review (Health Form 3) is organized by body system so that it can be cross referenced to the Health Management Care Plan and provides a comprehensive review of all diagnoses, interventions, intervention documentation, risk factors, and screening recommendations. The diagnostic review provides data that can be used to develop a comprehensive Health Management Care Plan that addresses those health factors.
