This case study will help your agency better prepare for the unthinkable. Hear the experience of an agency that worked with local and regional groups, developed a comprehensive disaster plan for the care and safety of their patients only to discover IT DIDN’T WORK!!  Emergency preparedness will be a top priority in upcoming surveys. Failure to comply can result in serious financial penalties, or even loss of your agency’s license. Take the steps necessary to create a plan that actually works.

This webinar will cover:

  • Required core elements of the emergency preparedness rule
  • Developing a process to meet those requirements
  • Identify obstacles and hazards most relevant to your agency
  • Conduct a full risk assessment and “Table Top Drill” for your agency
  • Educate staff based on your actual results
