2 Charting Basics Assessment Elements Assessment Framework Q & A Presentation Roadmap

3 Objectives How to: Engage the art of creating practically useable notes in the medical record Use basic assessment elements to create a chart form Progressively clarify your own assessment framework

4 Basic Assumptions Charting is an art Charts are legal documents Medical professionals do read chaplain notes Patients have access to their own medical record A culture of confidentiality promotes self disclosure Assessment is a partnership Recorded assessment consolidates spiritual care responsibility Legibility is essential

5 Chart Note Elements 1. What – Title - Pastoral Care (Spiritual Care) 2. When – Date / Time (24 hour clock) 3. Who – The Patient 4. Why you met this person 5. (Why she is hospitalized) 6. How she related to you in the encounter 7. What – Issues – Assessment descriptions/concepts 8. What – Chaplain functions - performed for this person 9. What – Plan – What you will do for this person 10. Who – You - Signature & professional identity

6 Fashioning Sentences Purpose - I saw this patient (reason you met her) Description - This (the patient) is a (age) (marital status) (race)(gender) who (reason for approaching the health care system) Process - She (phenomenological impressions of her and how she related to you) Assessment One – She (Your perceptions of what is now tending to sink her human spirit) Assessment Two - She (sources adding buoyancy to her spirit) Assessment Three – Her relationship to the Transcendent and the established world of religions and/or elements of her unique spirituality Functions - I (what the chaplain did to assist her spirit) Plan - I will (What this chaplain will do to further assist her)

7 I saw this patient at the request of her father who I had met in the hallway. She is a 57 year old widowed Pilipino woman with a daughter in California and a son that lives in town. She spoke in sad tones about her nagging knee pain and her mother who died in February. She has been crying this morning, somewhat overwhelmed by her inability to lift her grandson and by her grief over her mother’s death. I listened, facilitated her grieving and prayed with her, though she is currently not practicing her Catholic heritage. I will suggest the evening chaplain drop in on her for further support. She declined being visited by a priest.
