No matter if you're working in acute care to home health, everyone is tasked with a swallow evaluation at some point. One of my supervisors I had while in grad school during an acute care rotation encouraged me to create a template for bedside swallow evaluations. There are 2 per page to save paper and space. It is set up for easily circling and +/- indication so you can continue to focus on the evaluation. This template is a life saver if you have trouble remember how many times a patient might have coughed and especially when you have several patients back to back. There is only so much we can remember!
* This template is designed for evaluations only. Please see the treatment/follow up session template designed for treatment sessions*
