In addition to the director of nursing, there must be adequate numbers of registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and mental health workers to provide nursing care necessary under the active treatment program and to maintain progress notes on each member. The progress note must contain recommendations for revisions in the individual plan of care (IPC), as needed, as well as an assessment of the member's progress as it relates to the IPC goals and objectives.
