The recent changes to the federal regulations affect many moving parts in the SNF for the nurse leader, from infection control procedures to new F-tags. During this webinar, you will learn the specifics of what the new regulation requires of your clinical team, including how Phase 2 requirements impact Phase 3 requirements for items including QAA in relation to QAPI and facility assessment.

Compliance with recent SOM regulations related to staff competency require nurse leaders to tailor a training and education plan for staff specific to their facility’s resident population. The recent updates require not only sufficient nursing staff, but also that staff have the appropriate competencies and skills sets to provide nursing and related services to assure resident safety and attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident, as determined by resident assessments and individual plans of care. In addition, as of November 28, 2017, facilities must link staffing with the required facility assessment, which considers the number, acuity and diagnoses of the facility’s resident population. While the task of ensuring competency-based staffing might seem burdensome there is a bright side. Training and education are often associated with increased staff retention, decreased staff turnover, improved patient/resident outcomes, and a more effective and engaged workforce.
This webinar will discuss with key considerations when applying competency-based staffing using the facility assessment. In addition, participants will be given an example of a training/education evaluation plan that will assist in identifying site specific training needs.

To help you avoid those mistakes, AADNS is offering this 60-minute webinar, where you will gain valuable strategies and planning tips needed to be ready for compliance with the entire 483.21 comprehensive person-centered care planning regulation. We will also explain how care planning overlaps with residents’ rights, professional standards, and resident safety. Get the need-to-know information on baseline care planning; learn how it can fit into your workflow, and how it can bump up your resident satisfaction in person-centered care planning.
