Seminar Description

Do you know to what extent your social work department can impact your scores for CMS’ Five-Star calculations? Did you know that their care plan development and documentation on a resident can either support the quality care that is being provided in regard to re-hospitalizations, successful discharges to community, or use of antianxiety/hypnotic medication; OR become a huge deficit for your facility? CMS is conducting focused surveys that look closely at the codes we are placing on the MDS 3.0, as well as the care that is being provided to residents who have dementia. How will your facility fare? And is your staff fully prepared to meet these challenges? Come and learn as Cat explains the whole process and what it means to your facility and staff. This is a training that should be attended by the entire interdisciplinary care team; and specifically, the social work department. Don’t wait - register NOW!

Target Audience
This is a training that should be attended by the entire interdisciplinary care team; and specifically, the social work department.  Social Service Designees, Social Workers, Activity Professionals, Administrators, Nursing Staff
