Bi-Weekly Focus: BASELINE Modified RANKIN Score
Please remember to ask questions to be able to score a BASELINE Rankin score. We were getting better, then it fell off.
You could ask these questions:
- Do you need help making a simple meal, doing household chores, or balancing a checkbook?
- Do you need any help or assistance shopping for traveling close to home?
- Do you drive?
- Do you need any help or assistance walking?
- Do you need any help or assistance with eating, going to the restroom, or bathing?
These answers will provide so much information as to how the patient WAS functioning with their daily activities of living BEFORE they came in to the hospital.
DOCUMENTATION IS EVERYTHING!
TEMPORARY OCCLUSION DPCUMENTATION
