Change in Condition

The single most important thing you can do on a daily basis is to be alert to subtle changes in a resident’s condition and address it timely. It is important to know what signs to be watching for as changes in condition can present in many different ways. This program was developed for all caregivers including licensed staff and direct care staff providing resident care to assist in meeting the ever-changing status of each resident. We will also discuss the importance of communication tools such as stop and watch and SBAR in managing communication between disciplines.
