A written plan of treatment documents the direct medical supervision of clinical respiratory
services. The plan of treatment also provides a summary of the initial assessment information,
including the client’s ability to participate in a home care regime.


        Clinical services are provided to home care clients under the direction of the client’s
         physician. Clinical procedures, treatments or clinical assessments in the home must be
         prescribed by a physician and confirmed in writing on an initial plan of treatment.

        Any change in or from the initial plan of treatment must also be confirmed in writing and
         signed by the physician. Supplemental orders do not require a new plan of treatment.

        The client/family/caregiver has an active role in the development of the Plan of Treatment.


        Initial Plan:

                 The client’s need for clinical respiratory services is identified and communicated
                  through one or more of the following methods:

                          Physician’s order

                          Referral source request

                          Company staff evaluation

                          Client request
