Webinar: Are You Ready for the New Emergency Preparedness Requirements

Erin Prendergast and Dana Halvorson 

On Thursday, February 9th from 1 – 2 PM Eastern Time, AHCA will hold a webinar on the new emergency preparedness final rule impacting Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), Nursing Facilities (NF) and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID). This final rule is not applicable to Assisted Living Providers. The webinar includes guest speaker Jocelyn Montgomery, RN, and Director of Clinical Affairs at the California Association Health Facilities.

The rule was released on September 16, 2016, and can be found here. Providers will need to be in compliance by November 2017. The webinar will include, among other things, an overview of the key new requirements, a list of tools to assess if you are prepared for the rule, steps to take now to prepare, and time for your pressing questions to be answered. You may register online for the webinar on February 9th: Are You Ready for the New Emergency Preparedness Requirements? 

This will be the first in a 4-part webinar series AHCA will hold this year on the rule.
