Occupational Therapy Documentation Resources

Buffalo Occupational Therapy promotes and encourages defensive documentation. With experience in skilled nusing facility audits and outpatient occupational therapy audits as well as experience as a practitioner creating supportive documentation for reimbursement, BOT encourages all practitioners to display excellence in OT evaluations, progress notes, recertifications, and discharge notes. BOT uses a SOAP format for all documentation as this provides the most structured, comprehensive, and defensive format for payers and referral partners.

Occupational Therapy Goals for Everything

Buffalo Occupational Therapy desires that all occupational practitioners utilize best practices and client-centered care when developing unique goals for their clients’ occupational performance deficits. We also believe it is important to have examples to encourage and maximize mental flexibility when using clinical insight. By providing you with examples of what could be, Buffalo Occupational Therapy offers a starting point as you approach numerous situations. 

Home Exercise Progams

Buffalo Occupational Therapy will be posting home programs for your client’s requiring cognitive or behavioral-based activities, but uses Physiotools Web and App for our HEP needs. Compared to other sites and software, there are many ways Physiotools raises the bar for us. We do not receive financial/affiliate income from this recommendation. 

What sets physiotools apart (in our opinion) ?
