The State Operations Manual, Appendix PP includes the regulations that long-term care providers must follow to participate in Medicare and Medicaid. Most of these regulations for nursing homes are already in full force, but there is one last phase of implementation that goes into effect November 28, 2019. It includes a requirement for “trauma informed care.” This is a popular phrase these days – you’ve probably heard it mentioned following 9/11, school shootings and disclosures of sexual assault - but what is it and what do YOU need to do in your facility? Learn why it can be useful for you in everyday life and how to shift your organization’s culture to be more trauma-informed at this in-person training.
