Make assessing your patient’s functional abilities automatic and simple without being held up by your Quality Assurance or Coding teams because they need you to change your OASIS assessment observations…which definitely feels shady!




Create skilled nursing visit frequencies for your patients that prevent them from being re-hospitalized, while keeping PDGM, and HHVBP reimbursements in mind and using each and every one of your patients’ OASIS assessment visits effectively at the forefront of their plan of care. 

With The Safe Nursing Visit Frequency Formula™!

This Formula is a duo of  Easy Answers for OASIS Functional Impairment™ and The Art of Calculating Nursing Visits™.


The Art of Calculating Nursing Visits™ is the ONE tool that allows home health nurses to translate each individual patient’s functional impairment into a safe, reasonable, and effective skilled nursing visit frequency for their scheduled OASIS assessments.

Use this simple, step-by-step guide to provide objective proof to Medicare that your patients can safely heal and function within their home environment while working towards reaching their home healthcare goals. 

Instead of stressing out about the best way to prevent your patients from falling or hurting themselves when you’re not around, just assess your patients for specific cues that can be converted into an efficient, thorough, and continuously evaluated nursing visit frequency with The Art of Calculating Nursing Visits™

Easy Answers for OASIS Functional Impairment™ helps home health nurses identify the OASIS-E questions that are important to answer when determining each patient’s functional impairment scores, and calculating a matching nursing visit frequency, so nurses can simultaneously improve their home health nursing assessment skills, gain patient respect and trust, and build positive rapport all while stacking your agency’s reimbursement amounts and payments from Medicare.

And ultimately solidifying your paycheck amounts and consistency…THE RIGHT WAY!
