Meet with RN to determine eligibility.
Monthly weigh in/ Optifast purchase with RN and Coordinator – must be weighed in order to purchase the appropriate amount of Optifast ? – Can do these meetings downstairs after hours. Carla is currently scheduled 11-7 on Tuesdays. Can we consider doing one Tuesday a month from 5-7 downstairs where she weighs patients in and sells them Optifast? Or should we have her do this from upstairs?
If they are unable to make the monthly weigh in they must contact Carla with an update on weight loss progress and purchase from NOSC.
