    PHN Standards of Practice Evaluation Forms

    • A.

      The Public Health Nursing Supervisor (PHNS) uses these forms to evaluate the records for each PHN.

      • 1.

        One form is used for a 6-month period per standard of practice.

    • B.

      Complete all information as requested.

    • C.

      The PHN must meet the standard elements in order to receive a “met” rating.

      • 1.

        The PHN either totally meets the standard elements or she/he does not (there is no partial credit).

      • 2.

        Explain the reason why the PHN did not meet a certain standard element in the comments section. Write small number e.g. (1) next to the comment.

    • D.

      Check “not applicable” for a standard element which does not apply.

    • E.

      Add the number of applicable standard elements (total possible elements minus the not applicable elements). Use this number as the denominator.

      • 1.

        Calculate the percentage of standard elements “met” using the formula provided.

      • 2.

        The resultant figure is the compliance percentage for that standard of practice.

      • 3.

        If more than one record is evaluated, add the compliance percentage for each record and divide by the number of records. Record this percentage under the appropriate category on Attachment B.

    • F.

      The PHNS signs her/his name and date after each record is evaluated.

    • G.

      Retain these forms:

      • 1.

        Use when reviewing and discussing the results with the individual PHN.

        • a.

          Keep on file for one year plus current year.

  • III.

    PHN Standards of Practice Evaluation, PHNS Tracking Worksheet (Attachment A)

      The PHNS uses this form to track the number of record evaluated.

  • 1.

    Keep at desk side.

  • 2.

    Update as records are evaluated.

  • 3.

    Review periodically to determine type of records needed to complete evaluation

for the time period.
