(h) Fourth Webinar: Pandemic Recovery: Legal and Regulatory Updates

  • Registration Closed

This session will provide information and potential action items regarding survey and certification protocol and requirements, including recent changes and proposed changes.  COVID-19 has caused tremendous chaos in the lives of facility leaders, employees and residents. The dramatic changes have affected numerous regulatory and enforcement criteria, and the focus will continue to change as the country and the long-term care industry recovers to what will be our new normal. CMS and state agencies frequently readjust their focus regarding procedures and processes for surveys. The Office of Inspector General annual work plan provides information on current focuses and understanding the importance of compliance with requirements is imperative for good leaders. Also, discussion will include other areas, such as emergency preparedness, HIPAA, COVID-19 and other hot topics for nursing facilities. To earn a continuing education credit hour,  you must be present for this two-hour webinar in its entirety.

Learning Outcome:

Discuss two strategies to incorporate new regulations into everyday practice.
