Revised Sample OTA Supervision Log

In an effort to assist OTA’s and OT’s inaccurately and compliantly completing these logs, the OT Examining Committee has revised the sample log. The Committee has noted ongoing compliance issues with regard to the supervising occupational therapist meeting with the occupational therapy assistant and the patient on a monthly basis pursuant to Regulation 6(6.2)(C)(2). Therefore, the columns titled “Means of Communication” and “Patient Present Yes/No” have been combined. It is recommended that you carefully review the regulation requirements at the top of the sample log. If you have questions, you may contact Juli Carlson at 501-296-1802 or for assistance.
