Identifying And Reporting Abuse & Neglect, & Exploitation under the new ROPs
June 12, 2018
2 - 4:00 pm
1.5 CEUs for NHA, Nurses

Abuse and neglect citations are among the most common jeopardies and providers still have difficulty understanding how to identify, when to report, and how to protect other residents upon an allegation of abuse and neglect. This program will focus on actual examples where this lack of understanding resulted in enormous fines to the provider and loss of ability to try for a past non-compliance finding.

Objectives:
* Participants will be able to identify examples of what surveyors believes constitute abuse or neglect;
* Participants will be able to know when to report to ODH and how to protect residents pending a thorough investigation;
* Participants will understand how to implement an internal plan of correction to completely correct incidents that have already occurred through QAPI.
