Findings include:

Review of facility policy entitled "Care Plan: Interdisciplinary" dated 2/21/24, stated the purpose is to "Provide a comprehensive care plan that includes measurable objectives and timetables to meet medical, nursing, mental, and psychosocial needs that are identified including those identified in the comprehensive assessment, and formulate individualized treatment plans that promote maximum functioning and well-being" and "Nursing staff must notify RNAC (Registered Nurse Assessment Coordinator) of changes that could initiate new or additional care plans."
