The online events are open for registration and
"Communication, planning and practice are at the core of emergency preparedness for long-term care organizations, and also for compliance with the CMS emergency preparedness rule," said Terry Zysk, CEO of LiveProcess. "No one wants to see elderly and vulnerable patients undergo unnecessary risk and stress in an emergency or disaster event, as they were during last summer's hurricanes, with flooding and outages in the aftermath."
Many long-term care administrators and business owners are grappling with understanding the practical implications of the CMS emergency preparedness final rule. It was created to prevent negative outcomes such as those depicted in the horrific images of nursing home residents in wheelchairs waist-deep in flood waters last summer, along with power and HVAC outages that created unhealthy indoor conditions.
In these webinars, Boucher, MSN, RN, and Certified Emergency Manager, will explain what's needed for long-term care compliance and disaster management.
"The CMS emergency preparedness rule aligns with good emergency management practices for any organization, including long-term care facilities," said Boucher.
