Moving Forward: Legal and Regulatory Updates

Janet Feldkamp, RN, BSN, LNHA, CHC, JD

Our webinar is designed for Administrators, Director of Nursing, and nursing staff that provide care to elderly and developmentally disabled persons. Our desire is to provide networking among leaders in the Post-Acute Care, Long Term Care, and Assisted Living industry while providing education on hot button issues. We hope that participants leave with the knowledge and tools to prepare them for the future.

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 and facilities must move head at this time. The dramatic changes have effected 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 re-adjust 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 area such as emergency preparedness, HIPAA, COVID-19 and other hot topics for nursing facilities.

Learning objectives include

  1. Gain knowledge regarding current regulatory requirements and challenges for post-acute care facilities including transmittals, guidance and other issuances from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
  2. Review frequently cited deficiencies and discuss situation management.
  3. Comprehend the need for proactively addressing facility challenges facing the post-acute care industry.
