Culture change is one of the biggest new challenges facing SNFs, and social workers are at the forefront.
With the implementation of CMS’ psychosocial outcomes guidance and other revamped F-tags, the social services department must take a greater role in ensuring residents’ mental well-being as in nursing homes. However, many social workers come to SNFs unprepared for the unique set of problems facing the frail, often cognitively impaired elderly.
The Social Services Guide for Long-Term Care provides all the policies, job descriptions, care plans, psychosocial considerations, and sample forms you need to ensure social workers meet the demands of the new psychosocial guidance and achieve positive results for your residents. The Social Services Guide for Long-Term Care is a first-of-its-kind resource that will help social workers:
Understand the important role social services plays in long-term care by providing
up-to-date job descriptions
interpretation of important regulatory guidelines—including F-tags #250 and #251
Save time while embracing culture change through
dozens of useful policies
practical advice on completing Minumum Data Set (MDS) and Resident Assessment Protocols (RAP) forms
Provide quality resident care and achieve positive psychosocial outcomes with
over 25 sample care plans that address issues such as anxiety, language barriers, depression, refusal of care, and pain
more than 12 sample forms, such as a Discharge Summary, Grievance Investigation, and Transfer or Room Change Notice
Social workers are busy enough without having to scramble for forms and tools. Social workers have to deal with resident admissions and discharges, qualifying for Medicare and Medicaid, and verifying insurance status - all while ensuring residents’ mental well being and taking care of many other matters.
The Social Services Guide for Long-Term Care streamlines these duties by providing the practical tools they need to use on a daily basis.
Best of all, all of the policies, care plans, and sample forms are included on the companion CD-ROM and can easily be modified and printed to meet the needs of your facility. Take the first step toward culture change and ensure your social workers meet the demands of the new psychosocial guidance and achieve positive results for your residents.
