Ensure Your Facility’s Compliance with New RoPs: Meet the Forms and Policies Requirements

Phase 2 of the updated Requirements of Participation has an implementation date of November 28, 2017. In order to be in compliance with the new requirements, facilities must create or revise numerous forms and policies. There will be new interpretive guidelines by November 28, 2017 which will include all new and changed RoPs for Phase 1 and 2, and the State Operations Manual (SOM), which houses all F-tags, surveyor instructions and probes, interpretive guidelines, and citation instructions, will be totally rewritten.

Facilities are now required to develop and implement written policies and procedures to ensure that crimes are reported in alignment with Section 1150B of the Social Security Act (SSA). The Elder Justice Act requires the reporting of crimes against the elderly, and long term care facilities are included in the covered individuals that must report crimes. New policies must also be created indicating when it is the responsibility of the facility to replace lost or damaged dentures. Facilities must meet written policies requirements regarding smoking areas and smoking safety, emergency preparedness and behavioral health services.

This session by expert speaker Marilyn Mines will review all those forms and policies that are mandated to come into effect this year, and help to guide your facility towards compliance. Marilyn will also share a check-off chart to ensure completeness of policies and forms.
