Participants will take an in-depth look at the positive impact the household model of care can have on residents and how this impacts survey outcomes.  They will study how to ensure that the process changes using the household model of care meet and/or exceed Federal Regulations.  Utilizing tools and information provided by CMS [Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services] which regulates federal requirements for participation and demonstrated concepts of the household model, strategies will be identified by group learning.  Understanding how to connect the changing landscape of regulation, federal requirements and processes with the increased quality of life in the household model of care will allow participants to create a tangible process to accomplish positive survey results.  Participants will learn the concepts and processes required for Past Non-Compliance, creating a remedy that provides the community protection during survey.  In addition, participates will practice and demonstrate the ability to write a Plan of Correction under the new requirements. Participants will realize that embracing the household model in either short stay or long-term stay areas of their organization will significantly enhance the care and services while enabling them to have improved survey results.
