  • Abuse Prevention: Direct Care Staff

    Contains 4 Component(s)

    Per CMS, abuse is the willful infliction of injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation, or punishment with resulting physical harm, pain or mental anguish. Abuse also includes the deprivation by an individual, including a caretaker, of goods or services that are necessary to attain or maintain physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being. Instances of abuse of all residents, irrespective of any mental or physical condition, cause physical harm, pain or mental anguish. It includes verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and mental abuse including abuse facilitated or enabled through the use of technology. Willful, as used in this definition of abuse, means the individual must have acted deliberately, not that the individual must have intended to inflict injury or harm. This 30 minute presentation was developed to assist caregivers in focusing on each resident’s right to be free of abuse and neglect.

    Dementia disease is a progressive decline in cognitive function with memory loss. There are many types of dementia including HIV, vascular, Lewy Body, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc. Most are irreversible however when dementia is caused by thyroid disorders, drug interactions or dehydration, the symptoms may be reversible or treatable. Many families are unaware of their loved ones decline until the disease process has progressed significantly and the person is no longer safe. Some of this is denial and other times it is just a difficult thing to discuss with a parent or grandparent. No one will admit they have memory loss if they don’t have to as it is something that has stigma attached to it! This program was developed to assist you the caregiver in providing quality care to your residents with cognitive impairment while maintaining a safe, comfortable environment.

  • Caring for Residents With Bariatric Diagnosis

    Contains 4 Component(s)

    With the increasing rate of obesity, it is important to maintain the dignity of the resident. Obesity has increased from 14.4% to 30.9% from 1976 to 2000. Studies show that bariatric disease and its impact on one’s mobility and quality of life can cause bias, discrimination and social stigmas. There is clear, consistent evidence that individuals with obesity experience discrimination in family, social, education, and employment settings. Even the most compassionate caregiver may be reluctant to provide adequate care because of the threat of caregiver injury. The fear of injury is realistic and combined with the failure to provide satisfactory care to a complex resident, further perpetuation of discrimination toward the obese resident.

    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
