Stefanie Corbett, owner of Corbett Healthcare Solutions, joins us today to talk about challenges that SNF staff have faced during the pandemic, and ways administrators can support and encourage staff throughout this difficult period.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken things up for SNFs and affected nearly all day-to-day activities. In order to reduce the burden for SNFs, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a variety of blanket waivers to cut through red tape that SNFs typically face. The waivers are set to last as long as the pandemic is declared a national emergency, although we don’t yet know when that declaration will expire.
Today, long-term care expert Maureen McCarthy, RN, BS, RAC-MT, CQP, president of Celtic Consulting, LLC., discusses how nurses can recognize when the care they are providing is skilled and how COVID-19 impacts skilled care and documentation. We also dive into lessons learned from northeast facilities as COVID cases rise in the other parts of the country. Don’t recreate the wheel on COVID-19 prevention and management, learn from others who have been there!
