Providing a floor ambulation program (FAP) is one method by which skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) provide ambulatory activities for residents not requiring skilled therapy services. A tool was developed to concisely summarize each resident's ambulation performance and to provide a universal format for the nursing and rehabilitation personnel involved in FAP. The monitoring tool, which is in a spreadsheet format, provides a monthly summary of each resident's ambulatory status, allowing the physical therapist to focus on evaluation and treatment activities.
