    As we journey through the COVID-19 Pandemic, providers have been adjusting to the “new normal”.  However, especially during difficult times, we can’t let our guard down! Regulators and plaintiff attorneys have not gone away and are sharpening their skills to identify weaknesses in our response to the challenges we are facing.

    This program was developed to assist you in focusing on one of the major things you can actually control during the COVID-19 Pandemic - documentation. Even CMS understands that care should be a priority over paperwork; however today, the old adage “if it isn’t documented, it wasn’t done” has even more meaning! We will walk through some guidance on what documentation is considered essential when it comes to supporting your center in the event of a COVID-19 claim.

    Objectives:

    • Identify the key elements of documentation during a crisis
    • Discuss the importance of establishing a dated timeline
    • Identify the importance of maintaining a COVID-19 response file at a facility level

    Since the Public Health Emergency began in March 2020, long-term care facilities have been faced with ever-changing regulations and guidance from CMS and CDC. By the end of March 2020, Focused Infection Control surveys were frequent for many facilities, many times during outbreaks of COVID-19. CMS has made multiple changes in the survey protocols for infection control in long-term care facilities since the initial focused surveys were initiated in March 2020. This session will discuss the revised Long Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP) updated 1/27/2022, review and prepare for survey entrance document preparation related to Infection control policies and vaccination, and review F tag 888: COVID-19 Vaccination of Facility Staff.

    Since the Public Health Emergency began in March 2020, long-term care facilities have been faced with ever-changing regulations and guidance from CMS and CDC. By the end of March 2020, Focused Infection Control surveys were frequent for many facilities, many times during outbreaks of COVID-19. CMS has made multiple changes in the survey protocols for infection control in long-term care facilities since the initial focused surveys were initiated in March 2020. 

    CMS states they remain committed to taking critical steps to protect vulnerable Americans and to ensure the nation’s health care facilities are prepared to respond to the Coronavirus Disease 2019. In November 2021 CMS announced steps to assist State Survey Agencies in addressing the backlog of complaint and recertification surveys. The critical element pathway was revised again and was incorporated in the recertification and complaint survey process. CMS is increasing oversight in nursing homes to allow a more focused review of quality-of-life and quality-of-care concerns. 

    On November 5, 2021, CMS published an Interim Final Rule, entitled “Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination,” revising the infection control requirements that most Medicare and Medicaid certified providers and suppliers must meet to continue to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. In February 2022, CMS revised the survey protocols and trained surveyors for the revised survey process to include the monitoring of vaccination efforts.

     Objectives:

    • Discuss the revised Long Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP) updated 1/27/2022
    • Review and prepare for survey entrance document preparation related to Infection control policies and vaccination 
    • Review F tag 888: COVID-19 Vaccination of Facility Staff

    Throughout this session, we will be describing different theories on leadership, different styles and the traits that make some people more effective as leaders than others. It is interesting to watch each other's reactions as we describe these styles as each of you will definitely identify someone who fits each style of leadership, good and bad, and maybe you will identify yourself as well! So leading isn’t all it is cracked up to be. There is a lot of pressure on leaders at all levels of the organization. Think about the leaders in your center and remember, many leaders are not given the title or position of being in charge. These self-proclaimed leaders are the CNAs who other CNAs look at and respect, good or bad, and will follow the lead of this person. So how many of you can identify a leader in the CNA team in your center? Think about it, they might be the union steward or they might be the activity assistant. What makes them likable and someone people want to be around? Let’s explore the different styles and see what we learn today! Release Date: 12/20/2019
