About the Course:
Providing excellent wound care services depends on documentation that clearly illustrates assessment and medical necessity, skilled interventions performed, and outcomes achieved. Complete and thorough wound care documentation is the critical foundation for successful reimbursement of services. If this is achieved, the client, the clinician, and the regulatory agency all benefit. When it comes to regulatory audits and denials of reimbursement, being proactive is the key. Thus, this course addresses pertinent topics such as components of resident-centered collaboration between therapy and nursing in wound care, common errors, key elements in wound care documentation to prevent denials, and principles of effective documentation for nursing and therapy to support skilled wound care services.
