Emergency Preparedness Workshop & Tabletop Exercise for LTC Centers

Training and Tools to Help You Meet the November 15th, 2017 Deadline

June 29, 2017 - Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando, FL
*Meeting Room: Suwannee 13/14/15

The CMS regulations were published in September 2016, became effective on November 15, 2016, and all facilities must be in compliance by November 15, 2017. These detailed requirements are applicable to many Medicare and Medicaid participating providers, and in particular to Nursing Homes/Skilled Nursing Facilities. The overarching message from CMS is loud and clear…it is essential that health care leadership integrate emergency management into their daily functions and values.

This full-day workshop will provide guidance, tools and templates to assist facilities to be compliant with the new CMS Emergency Preparedness Standards. Every participant will leave with “Actions for Compliance” and next steps to guide their compliance before the November 15, 2017 deadline. The workshop includes a facilitated Tabletop Exercise that will meet one of the CMS requirements for annual testing of each facility’s own Emergency Plans.

Tabletop Exercise

Included in the workshop will be a facilitated Tabletop Exercise that will meet one of the CMS requirements for annual testing of each facility’s own Emergency Plans. Participants will be required to bring their Emergency Plans to the workshop for reference, and must ensure adequate representation from their facility (including the Administrator /Executive Director, Director of Facilities, Director of Nursing, etc.) either at the seminar, or participating in an internal debriefing after the seminar. To complete the required actions, each facility will complete the provided “Facility After Action Report / Improvement Plan” for proper documentation.
