  • Re: I must disagree with this premise

    Tim, I recall you writing on this topic either in other forums or in the past on this forum.&nbsp; You seem to have a rather ''vitriolic'' opinion of COTA's.&nbsp; Reading between the lines, I sense that perhaps the problem is not so much with your COTA's as with you.&nbsp; You ''hand'' them things and expect them to ''do'' them.&nbsp; The problem ...

  • Re: inservice ideas and project

    With these diagnoses, there is always the danger of relying on ''splinter'' skills.&nbsp; It can be helpful to have a refresher course in holistic approaches to these clients.&nbsp; &nbsp;Preparing food is always a great activity project -- from boxed muffins to a 3 course meal including garlic bread, salad and lasagne--there are ample ...

  • Re: Donning of TED hoses

    Actually, one of my elderly clients was able to independently don her TED hoses.&nbsp; She wore rubber gloves and was able to get a ''grip' on the hose and pull it up.&nbsp; Since then, I've recommended this to other clients and most have been&nbsp;successful with this technique.

  • Re: E-Stim for paralyzed arm

    It's humerus, not humorous (especially for the patient). It's paralyzed, not parallelized (although the arms can be parallel to each other at times). &nbsp;

  • Re: Worth meeting with facility administrator?

    If patients are not receiving proper treatment and there are fraudulent billing practices, there is an 800 number to call Medicare.&nbsp; You can remain anonymous and just report what you know.&nbsp; There should be a follow-up investigation by Medicare -- after all, they are the ones being defrauded (as well as the patients).

  • Re: I must disagree with this premise

    Tim:&nbsp; Funny, but your description of the COTA sounds EXACTLY like the OTR I work with.&nbsp; Didn't you learn not to generalize in college (or did you sleep through that class).&nbsp; So much for OTR/COTA collaboration...if your ''attitude'' catches on, you'll set the profession back quite a few years.&nbsp; Perhaps it is just immaturity and ...

  • Re: What is in a title... OTA/OTR

    Absolutely amazing that you can just tell someone to ''go back to school''--making huge assumptions that the person is in a position to be able to go back to school.&nbsp; They may be hampered by financial or personal responsibilities (i.e. children, aging parents)&nbsp;or they may CHOOSE to be a COTA. &nbsp; I guess being ''holistic'' only ...
