Standards For Discharge Records


Within 30 days following the patient’s last scheduled visit or last contact, the physical therapist or physical therapist assistant shall document a final summary of the patient’s physical therapy status upon discharge from the patient’s current episode of treatment.


The discharge summary shall include, but is not limited to:


Date and reason for discharge, or self discharge, if known;


Degree of goal achievement or reasons for goals not being achieved;


Summary of the patient’s status at the time of discharge; and


Recommendations for follow-up care, if any.


A discharge summary is not required when another licensed medical professional documents a patient’s discharge from an acute inpatient care facility as that term is defined in ORS 442.470 (Definitions for ORS 442.470 to 442.507)(1).
