Product Description

Get Compliant with CMS Requirements & Guidelines on Antipsychotics in Nursing Homes

Administering "unnecessary drugs", such as antipsychotics, illegally in nursing homes is just that—illegal. CMS is now coming down hard on such activities, and it can mean severe repercussions for you and your staff if your facility is found guilty of such transgressions.

Learn what federal regulations require regarding individualized care, best dementia care practices, and individualized, non-pharmalogical approaches to avoid unnecessary drugs in this informative session by healthcare expert Carmen Bowman. Bowman will walk you through the following CMS tags: F758, Free from Unnecessary Psychotropic Meds / PRN Use; F744, Dementia Care Treatment and Services; F655, Comprehensive Person-Centered Care Planning; F550, Resident Rights; and F561, Self-determination. She will also share the statistics and resources regarding the CMS’ Initiative to Improve Behavioral Health.

After attending this workshop, you will be confident in your ability to avoid the 'misuse' of antipsychotic medication in your nursing home.  You will also know the CMS requirements for resident choice such as open dining, honoring sleep, and more. You will be well versed with care plan preferences more than problems, and will also be able to view “behaviors” as communications.
