This course was designed to help teach the RN how to complete the CNA form in the HCS or TxHmL program. It is also designed to assist others who might be reviewing the form for various reasons, to be able to understand the components of the form.
We will be discussing the forms in the nursing tool box that go along with the CNA (8584) from HHSC– for the purposes of care planning, delegation, and determination of medical tasks, for the individuals in your program.
This session we will be discussing the CNA and Care Planning via our powerpoint. We will review some of the “nursing tool kit” as well as other optional forms.
 We will also be looking at samples of CNA’s and  Nursing Care Plans/Nursing IP’s- HCS Nursing IP/Care Plan for the Individual-which must include Nursing outcomes/goals, objectives with any strategies/instructions to those carrying out the care plan, and justification of nursing units/hrs. This would include LVN justifications as well.
-Review of the updated CNA Form 8584  from HHSC (Health & Human Services Commission), along with all other nursing forms.
-Time frames for completing CNA and why it needs to be completed.  
-Definition of RN Delegation,  and other determinations such as: Host Home Exemption, SB1857/HRC Chapter 161.  
-Review of CRA (Client’s Responsible Adult),
– What does the term “Health Topics”?  (Self-Administration of Medications) & Assessment of the Individual, Assessment of the CRA and Host Home Companion Care Provider,
Development of the Nursing Service Plan/Plan of Care/Nursing IP, and Nursing Unit Justifications,
-Importance of Inservicing &  Special Needs Training,
-Frequency of Supervision of the Unlicensed Person,
Monitoring for Health Status Changes and making changes to the Plan of Care/Nursing Service Plan.
–  We will spend quite a bit of time reviewing pages 12-19 of the CNA form, which are more specific to the HCS and TxHmL program.
