Seminar Description:

November 28, 2016 was the beginning effective date for the new CMS Requirements of Participation (RoP) for nursing homes. CMS is utilizing a phased-in implementation of the requirements over a 3-year time period. This training will cover the components of Phase 2, which become effective November 28, 2017. This intensive 1-day training will provide your staff with the information they need to be prepared for upcoming surveys, and familiarize them with the anticipated changes. Cat will be providing detailed instruction and guidance regarding specific survey focus for the new requirements, addressing facility practice and process.


One of the most concerning issues in Phase 2 focuses on the completion of a Facility Assessment. This document will become the basis for surveyors’ evaluation of sufficient staffing, delivery of care/services, as well as competency skills. Cat will be providing a sample template for this document to all participants, and will conduct a “walk-through” regarding the development and completion of the Assessment.


Cat Selman consistently teaches in a manner that is easily understood. She provides insight as to surveyor focus and is on target with recommendations/instruction for staff operational process.


Since we ran out of meeting space for participants at last month’s training, we have secured the meeting room for a second “flow-over” day (August 31st) should it be needed. Early registrants will be awarded space for the August 30th date - all others will be awarded space on the second day, if necessary. Your cooperation is appreciated!
