Product Description

Get up to Speed with the New CoPs for Emergency Preparedness and Avoid Penalties

The implementation of the new Conditions of Participation (CoPs) has impacted home care agencies in a big way. Agencies are now required to have an emergency program in place. Don’t expect perfect surveys, because recent surveys have revealed many deficiencies. Your home care agency should now have updated policies and procedures regarding emergency preparedness – and you should have evidence that demonstrates compliance with the new requirements.

Join this session with home health care expert Vicky Trevarthan, RN, BS, MHA Candidate to learn all that you must do to be compliant – and there’s a lot. Trevarthan will bring you up to speed with the policies and procedures, as well as the training and testing requirements necessary to demonstrate compliance. You will learn about the 5 required elements of emergency preparedness, and how to successfully develop and maintain plans, policies and procedures. You will also learn how to be a part of an integrated health system emergency preparedness plan, and more.

After attending this program, you will be able to confidently and compliantly develop, implement and evaluate your agency’s emergency preparedness plan – as well as revise it when required.
