• COVID-19 Care Plan Toolkit - Spanish v2 (Updated 7/15/20)
    The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 says that nursing homes "must provide services and activities to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial wellbeing of each resident in accordance with a written plan of care". This toolkit was developed to assist you in updating your current care plans to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Facilities across the country are being cited for not having updated, comprehensive care plans to address the risks associated with the virus, isolation, decline in ADLs, etc. This toolkit will give you some examples and is not intended to be the end-all but rather the beginning!
