Description:

The MDS 3.0 database will have significant changes October 1, 2018.  Not only will it require many new items in a wide variety of Sections – especially Section GG – but there will also be significant coding guidance expected.  This session is designed for the entire operational, clinical and therapy team as well as the MDS Managers and staff of the MDS office.  The changes will add 5 pages to the assessment tool – mostly to Section GG.  Many of the new items will contribute to the new Quality Measures that are being formulated and create the data flow for the new Patient Directed Payment Method that can go into effect in 2019.  This session is being presented by one of the most informed and experienced experts on the MDS 3.0 and the facility data base.  Participants will need to bring the RAI Manual. This is a must do session for your facility operation.

Description:
For long term care providers, this program will provide timely updates on important topics that impact your daily operations. These resources will be invaluable tools as you position your community for the changes and exposure in the long term care profession.

Providers must understand drug diversion and be prepared with policies and procedures to address this. Proper medication disposal will also be covered. Attendees will hear the latest survey findings and compliance issues along with future enforcement changes. A panel will share real life examples of a recent emergency situation and how all providers can learn from their experiences.

The legal issues of facility discharges, incident reporting and arbitration agreements will be covered. With ever-increasing costs and the projections for the growth of older Oklahomans, the future of long term care will be discussed, including proactive ways to protect this profession.
