  • Managing Long-Term Facilities: A Patient-Centered Approach

    With increased competition in the marketplace for both residents and staffers, long-term care facilities are feeling the crunch. Successful managers are those who approach each aspect of facility management in terms of how it will affect their patients.

    During this webinar, Michele McFadden will discuss several functional areas and their impact, directly or indirectly, on patient care.

  • Evidence-Based Staffing Approaches for Implementing Culture Change

    Initiating culture change within a memory care neighborhood is more than just an inspired idea stemming from the team’s passion to provide person-directed care for each individual with neuro-cognitive impairments.  Implementing culture change frequently requires a complete deconstruction and overhaul of current systems and ways of thinking across each discipline.

  • Common Life Safety Code Deficiencies and Strategies for Compliance

    This informative webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of common Life Safety Code (NFPA #101) deficiencies that are identified in long-term care facilities during the survey and inspection process.  The program will provide guidance on maintaining a safe and compliant environment of care in accordance with applicable regulations and Best Practices.

  • Workplace Violence, Active Shooter, and the Crossroads with OSHA

    With the specters of high patient-acuity, cognitive decline and polypharmacy looming in long-term care, there is high staff risk for potential altercations with residents or violent episodes against other employees. However, organizations without an intervention plan and policy for such scenarios risk Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) penalties and, more importantly, danger for residents and employees.

  • Data is Power: Exploring Data Analytics and Business Intelligence at Top National Care Providers

    In the new era of healthcare, data is power, and that power is rapidly expanding from the wave of use and innovation seen in post-acute and long-term care. Brookdale Senior Living, Cedar Village, and Nationwide Healthcare Services are embracing the integrated clinical dashboards, data visualization, and quality reporting as a daily reality—each of which have started to add valued metrics to these organizations.

  • Polypharmacy: What Is It and What Do We Do About It?

    The term "polypharmacy" is most often used to refer to the use of multiple medications in one individual, but there is no clear consensus about what number of medications is required to qualify. Frequently, polypharmacy is considered to be synonymous with inappropriate prescribing, or the use of too many medications.

  • CMS Final Rule: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    On October 4, 2016, CMS published its Final Rule, Reform of Requirements for Long Term Care Facilities, in the Federal Register. The final rule imposes the most sweeping changes to the long term care industry since 1991.  CMS received almost 10,000 comments prior to its adoption of the final rule, some of which seemed to make a difference, while others did not.

  • Combating the Winter Blues through Activity Programming

    In the long term care setting, January can be one of the slowest months of the year. The three months prior, residents have been over stimulated with holiday events and parties. After the new year, the facility becomes quiet once again. This webinar will provide solutions and innovative ideas for activity programming that will help with combating the winter blues.
