Discharge Planning, Hearings & Appeals: It's A New Ballgame

April 10, 2018
2 - 3:30 pm
1 CEU for NHA, Nurses


The newly proposed Requirements for Participation emphasize the importance of comprehensive discharge planning as more residents will be discharged quicker into the community. Additionally, changes are proposed to the discharge appeals process, some of which appear to have been adopted by Hearing Examiners as a matter of practice if not by law. This webinar will review the requirements in the discharge process and provide actual examples of cases that have been decided by Hearing Examiners in Ohio.


Objectives:
* Learn the basics of the discharge process
* Identify cases where the provider has prevailed and why
* Learn the proposed changes to the discharge process under the proposed Requirements of Participation
