Description: Since the new CMS survey process has gone into effect, deficiencies in “person-centered care” have been routinely cited in most facilities. The basis for individualized care revolves around, and is directed by, the resident’s comprehensive care plan. This one document causes more frustration, confusion, and concern than almost any other piece of documentation. Who is involved? How is it written? How do we make the plan “individualized,” especially when utilizing computer-generated plans? And, ultimately, what are surveyor’s expectations in this area? Join Cat as she explains the easy process of developing an individualized, person-centered care plan for each resident. During this workshop, Cat will share surveyor focus and trends in current citations. Cat continues to train state agencies (surveyors) in this area and is considered an authority in the care plan process. This is one training that ALL staff should not miss!!
