Revitalized Vital Signs! The Winners Are…..

By Tamala Sammons, M.A. CCC-SLP, Senior Therapy Resource
A huge thank-you to everyone who submitted information on how vital signs in therapy are being integrated at their facilities. We had amazing entries from across the organization. We were blown away by how vital signs have become such an integral piece of therapy services. We read the most clinically comprehensive documentation and saw how decisions around care were driven by vital signs during therapy sessions. We also were impressed on how vital signs data collected in therapy was used for IDT communication to ensure the very best collaborative care.

Overall we want to thank everyone – whether you submitted something in or not – for your focus on providing the best care using all resources, including integrating vital signs.
