CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION &
ELECTRONIC CHARTING

  • Visit Documentation should be submitted within 48 hours of a visit.

  • If you are unsure what forms are required to document a visit, ask before leaving the home.

    • Some pharmacies require additional forms. 

  • All visits should be documented with no less than 30 minutes of visit time.

    • Start of Care / Admission visits should be no less than 1 hour.

  • All visits are paid at your base/flat rate, which compensates you for:

    • Up to 1 hour of your time in the patient’s home (after which, additional visit time is paid at your hourly rate.), and

    • Up to 50 miles or 1 hour of total travel (after which, additional travel is paid at $0.54 per mile or $30 per hour, whichever is greater.).

  • HHC strongly encourages our staff to utilize the Logiforms Nurse Portal to chart and submit clinical documentation electronically, but use of this platform is currently optional.

 

  • Select nurses may be required to utilize Logiforms due to an established pattern of late and/or incomplete/erroneous submissions.

  • Nurses can submit paper documentation through the following channels:

    • SharePoint Online: Click Here to Upload **Preferred**

    • MS Teams Message:

      • send a clear, high resolution picture of each page, capturing all 4 corners, without shadows

      • Tag @TeamHelp-VisitNotes with each submission

    • Fax to: 888-502-5390

    • Email to: admin@helmshomecare.com

LOGIFORMS FAQs
Frequently asked questions

Q: Does HHC provide a tablet/device for using Logiforms?

A: No, the current expectation is for HHC nursing staff to use their existing cellular device (smart phone) to complete documentation in Logiforms. Logiforms was specifically designed and optimized for use on mobile. 

Q: How much storage space does Logiforms occupy on my personal device?

A: None. Logiforms is a secure online portal that does not require the user to download or save anything to their personal device.

Q: How are patient/client signatures obtained?

A: Patients will sign as needed using a stylus pen or a finger. It is our strong recommendation that you do not allow the signor to hold your device. Instead, we recommend that you place your device on a clean, stable surface or that you hold the device while obtaining signature. 

Q: How do I make sure I am provided a stylus pen and appropriate supplies for sanitzing the pen and my device? 

A: A stylus pen and alcohol wipes to sanitize the pen can be ordered from the Agency through our online supply order form. It is not recommended to use alcohol or other sanitizing wipes on any touch device. As recommended by most device manufacturers, when UV light sanitation is not available, the exterior surfaces of touch devices should be cleaned with a cloth mildly dampened by soapy water or 70% alcohol.

Q: What if my device is damaged while charting is being done? 

A: You are responsible for the proper use and protection of your device at all times. You should not give your device to a patient/client or place your device on an unstable or unclean surface. Maintaining control and protection of your device while charting should prevent any damages from occuring.

Q: Is there any reimbursement for using our personal devices for electronic documentation? 

A: No. At this time the use of the Logiforms electronic charting platform is an optional convenience for our nurses, therefore no compensation exists. In the future, when this platform is required, the Agency will provide a compensation structure that reflects this expectation and requirement.


Q: What about my patients that have forms in the home that I need to submit? 

A: Logiforms allows for images and files to be uploaded with any visit record submission. The user simply scans or takes a clear picture of the paper/pages and uploads the image(s)/file(s) to the visit record.


Q: What about my patients that are with pharmacies that require specific forms in addition to or in lieu of HHC standard documentation? 

A: Nurses can complete these special forms as usual and then scan or take a clear picture of the paper/pages and upload the image(s)/file(s) to the visit record. For pharmacies that require their own forms in lieu of HHC paperwork, the user will only upload the required documentation and will not be prompted to complete HHC forms electronically.
 

Q: What if I forget to have my patient sign the visit note, consent, or education checklist?

A: During a Start of Care or Admission visit it is crucial that the nurse obtain signature on the HHC Consent form prior to providing any hands-on care. This is to ensure the Agency, Nurse and Patient are protected by our insurance and liability coverage. Failure to obtain this signature could result in disciplinary action, so please do not forget.

If you forget to obtain signature during a routine visit for an established patient, you will need to notify us via Teams by tagging @TeamHelp-VisitNotes.

 

*Forgetting to obtain signature should be a rare occurrence. Nurses with a pattern of forgetfulness will be required to travel back to the patient's residence to obtain signature without additional compensation for such travel.
