Centrally Stored Medication Record

Why Texas again?

I had another assisted Living community call with a request to have the report, "Centrally Stored Medication Record" customized to include refill and expiration date. As I reviewed other states, there is variation on the requirements, although I'd say minor variations (meaning surveyors could easily accept it).

Anyway, PALs added a "comment" field that can be customized by any user, in any state, to fill a field and have it print on the report.

Texas Medication Profile

I had a call from a PALs user in Texas last week stating, "the surveyors are here and they want a specific format for the Medication Profile." "Can you help and how soon?"

I was happy to help, and had the revised format completed in less than 30 minutes. The surveyors wanted, not sure they "needed", all the information in one place, and that one place was the Medication Profile. So the "amount_received", "pharmacy_name", and "Issue_Date" for each medication was added to the profile.

Because PALs is hosted on "The Cloud", changes can be easily and quickly made, and seen on all devices.
