Do your surveyors and providers care plan according to CMS’ long standing requirement to identify each resident’s highest practicable level of well being? Also, you are now required to support each resident’s seven domains of wellbeing, are you? Are you still developing traditional, institutional, disciplinary care plans?
CMS now clearly states in its regulations that residents should determine their own goals for their care plan, determine who attends care conferences with them, receive a copy of their plan, and more. It is time to move on from institutional care plans to more personalized and individualized care plans. Supporting residents to set their own goals is a new CMS requirement, and is also a tried and true culture change practice with high level of living and growth plans.
If you are still writing traditional, medical, institutional care plans, and if your residents are not driving their care plans, it is time to change course. Care plans belong to, and should reflect, the person. Be freed from the outdated, now deficient, medical model of care planning. In this session, industry veteran Carmen Bowman will cover culture change practices progressing from personalized to “I” care plans to narrative care plans. You will learn how the new CMS requirements and long-standing culture change practices will support you in moving in a new direction.
After attending this session, you will have a strong understanding of what federal regulations require regarding care planning and what they do not. You will be bolstered by regulations and long-standing practice to ask residents and help them determine goals for themselves. You will be able to identify “highest practicable level of wellbeing” for residents as required by CMS since 1987 and become familiar with the seven domains of wellbeing.
