Agency Top Ten Deficiencies and Updates

In this session, the Agency for Health Care Administration will provide an update on the top ten assisted living facility citations and updates on topics to help manage the latest in surveys. Hear about case studies to provide instruction and guidance on ways to avoid frequent high level citations.

Saddle Up for the Continuum of Care Ride

Regina Wild, Director of Community & Home-Based Services, Managed Care Consultants of Florida, Inc.
With so many options across the care continuum, what role do assisted living facilities play? How do we dig in our spurs to bridge the gap and best coordinate the transitions in care? How do we improve communications so that all needs are met on the sometimes-bumpy trail? This session will help you to understand both sides of the discharge planning process and give you tools to implement best practices for your Medicaid residents.

Infection Prevention and Control Updates

A.C. Burke, VP of Healthcare Quality, RB Health Partners, Inc.
To build a successful infection prevention program in an assisted living facility, leadership staff needs to have knowledge of the regulations impacting this care environment, what policies and procedures are needed to support the program and strategies for how to implement the program. This session will review each of these topics as well as discuss the role of the risk assessment, infection prevention plan, and a culture of safety to support an effective infection prevention program.

Innovative Approaches to Riding the Silver Tsunami

Jake Kohl, CEO/Co-Founder, NurseDash
The Silver Tsunami has arrived. Those adults aged 85 and older, who often need assistance with personal care, will nearly quadruple by the year 2040. Our nation's aging will result in a twofold demand on long term care. How will the profession prepare to meet the staffing and organization challenges the Silver Tsunami brings? Industry leaders need a strategy to leverage technology that provides a real solution to the increasing labor shortage in health care and enables their centers to keep up with the never-ending demand for more staff. The presenter will share strategies and unique insights around preparing for the Silver Tsunami.
