Sometimes the hardest part of a new job is just getting started on the right track. Here is a quick list to help you save time.
DO: Test your account access prior to visiting the member's home. You may ask yourself: Is the member's home in my cell provider's network or out in the boonies? When was the last time I logged in and ran through assessment questions?
DON'T: Wait until you're in front of the member to access the platform for the first time and find out your password expired. Log in a few hours before your assessment time to ensure everything is in order and accessible.
DO: Have a backup plan in case Wi-Fi/cellular network access is slow or nonexistent. (Keep a printed copy of the assessment questions handy or a electronic PDF copy on your device.)
DON'T: When you don't have access to the internet through your own secure device, do not use the member's Wi-Fi network to access the platform. There are security and insurance risks involved when using an unknown member asset (If you can't use your own secure network device, go to your back up plan.)
DO: Carry your DME-CG identification with you at all times when performing assessments to prove you are a clinician performing assessments on behalf of DME-CG.
Clinical Assessment Questions (When you get stuck and need professional assistance.)
