THERAPY ORDERS: Help please
So if the agency received a DC order from the hospital stating for OT or PT to eval then the PT or OT went to see the patient for eval and see the need for therapy and will have further visits with the patient, the order for PT or OT eval has to be included in the Home Health care plan or the DC order from the hospital for PT/OT eval is enough and in compliance and does not need to be included or carried over in the Home Health care plan? My understanding is: it has to be included in the HH care plan. Any link to substantiate and clarify this is highly appreciated. There are 2 different opinions in our office. Thank you all.
