An Occupational Therapist II (OT II) is autonomously responsible for examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, intervention and discharge planning for the OT needs of patients who have potential for functional impairments, limitations and disabilities and are referred to occupational therapy. Additional responsibilities of an OT II include independence in practice across multiple diagnostic groups, and supervision of affiliating students.
Evaluate patients to include: determining appropriateness of referral, medical history review, examination, identifying diagnosis, prognosis, and plan of care. Discuss findings and plan of care with patient. Implement the plan of care using therapeutic procedures, equipment devices, teaching interventions, and ongoing collaboration and referral to additional health care providers to achieve patient's goals and optimize function. Regularly re-evaluate patient status, review the plan of care and make necessary modifications to plan of care and discharge plan based on the patient's subjective or objective response to determine if goals are being met. Perform teaching responsibilities including but not limited to: teaching patients and families, preparing and presenting in-services, and educational lectures in and outside of the department. Serve as a mentor and/or resource for teaching and supervising less experienced therapists, therapy assistants, students, rehab aides, practice assistants, and support personnel in patient care activities. Demonstrate initiative, seek opportunities and set professional goals in areas of teaching, quality assurance, performance improvement and research. Continue to learn from more experienced clinicians. Support an environment of idea sharing and exchange of feedback with staff across the service and department.
