Staff Competencies and the Facility Assessment for Independent Owners
Recorded On: 05/16/2017
The implementation date for the facility assessment requirement in the Requirements of Participation is November 28, 2017. This webinar will provide Independent Owners (IOs) with an overview of the facility assessment and staff competencies requirements and offer suggestions aimed to help IOs get started on these new requirements. This Phase 2 requirement touches upon many aspects of managing your center, including understanding the care needs of residents based on their acuity, conditions, and other factors, and reviewing your center’s resources including buildings, equipment, and services provided. A key component of the facility assessment is identifying the staff competencies needed to provide the level and types of care to meet the needs of residents in your center.
1. Identify the facility assessment and staff competencies provisions in the Requirements of Participation.
2. Recognize existing data in their nursing center that is applicable for completion of the facility assessment.
3. Assess and update their center’s staff competency assessment process in accordance with the new requirements.
