What is the OT Process? (List the steps in order and who does each step)

1. Referral (MD)
2. Evaluation (OTR)

4. Intervention implementation (OTR and/or COTA)
5. Re-evaluate (OTR/COTA)
6. Discharge (if goals are met) OR
Continuation of Care

What is an outcome?

A goal; the OTR initially sets up the goals and the COTA reviews and motifies them as they do treatments

What three things do you need before seeing a client?

Name, diagnosis (Dx), precautions

Level of Assistance

I = Independent
mod. I = modified independent
AE = Adapted Equiptment
(Skipped a few levels in class)
min. A = minimal assist (25% COTA assist)
mod. A = moderate assist (50%)
max. A = maximum assist (75%)
Total A = total assist (100%) (OR dependent)

5

Give an example of a goal.

"Client will don a shirt with mod A"
Means: goal is that they will do it with 50% assist
They aren't there yet, so start with a lower level and when that goal is met, bump it up to min A and keep going up.

6

Things to consider when making goals?

Include level of assistance
Include a time limit (ex: standing for 5 min)
MAKE SURE GOALS ARE MEASURABLE AND REASONABLE
If current goal of standing for 3 min is met, move it to 5 min next; not 10 min.
