CDPHE-approved online interactive training
The Provision of Skilled Services: From Referral to Discharge
Your care and services: Is your agency on the right track?
Are you admitting clients who are appropriate for your agency? Does your comprehensive assessment include all required elements and does it help you identify high-risk patients? Are you properly documenting medication management for all your clients? Are your nursing, therapy, social services and nurse aide services provided in accordance with regulatory requirements and professional standards? Does your agency document everything necessary when discharging a client?
If you can’t answer yes to all of these questions, your next survey could be a frustrating and difficult experience.
Our online interactive course, The Provision of Skilled Services: From Referral to Discharge, can help you ensure your agency is in compliance with all requirements and better prepare you for when the surveyors walk through the front door!
Attendees will learn skills and tools necessary to apply State Licensure standards in day-to-day operations of a skilled home care agency as well as how to assess and monitor compliance on an ongoing basis and avoid common pitfalls.
