The psychosocial guidance from CMS effects every aspect of nursing home care.
The psychosocial outcome severity guide affects every aspect of the long-term care survey process, and a failure to understand the guidance can cause deficiencies, increase their severity, and pose a serious threat to your facility’s reputation.
Written by industry expert, Molly C. Morand, RN, BSN, BC, Complying with CMS' Psychosocial Guidance will help administrators, social service managers and directors of nursing make sense of the all-encompassing new psychosocial guidance.
Packed with relevant, time-saving forms and checklists, this book and CD-ROM will help you avoid deficiencies by meeting surveyor expectations and implementing a culture change in your facility in reaction to the new guidelines—all while using the MDS to monitor successful compliance. You’ll benefit from:
Clarification of the new guidance, including surveyor expectations, that will ensure understanding and survey readiness
Easy-to-implement ideas for culture change and staff education, to help staff understand how this guidance affects everyone in the nursing home.
Documentation tips, examples, and real-world examples that you can draw from to ease the confusion of complying with the guidelines
a CD-ROM containing easy-to-print tools and forms that are easy to modify to the needs of your facility
Achieve culture change without a huge financial investment. Skilled nursing facilities must now show surveyors not only that they're providing adequate resident care, but that their residents experience meaningful, satisfying lives. This could mean a big change in the way staff view their roles and carry out duties.
Complying with CMS' Psychosocial Guidance will help ease this culture change by providing easy-to-implement ideas for staff education. Best of all, the tools, forms, and care plans you need to train staff on the new guidelines are included on the bonus CD-ROM at no additional cost, meaning you can ensure this vital change in care occurs without spending a lot of money!
