LTC Survey Program Scheduled Next Week

REMINDER: A full-day LTC survey program will be held January 14, 2015 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Richmond – Midlothian.  Presenters will analyze trends and patterns of the 2014 survey findings for self-assessment of organizational policies, protocols and practices.  Attendees will explore current standards and practices related to pressure ulcer prevention and treatment and use of available resources and tools for quality improvement.  
In the afternoon, participants will be provided with an overview of current staging definitions, strategies for differentiation of pressure ulcers with moisture associated skin damage, lower extremity ulcers, and other chronic wounds.  In addition, discussion will include the terms and implications of Kennedy Terminal Ulcer and Skin Failure at Life’s End.  Presenters will demonstrate selected Section M item sets of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 that are often miscoded and how accuracy of Section M plays a vital role in the organization’s quality measure towards its 5-Star Rating.  Participants will also explore methodologies, resources and tools related to pressure ulcer prevention and treatment that will enhance the organization’s efforts for quality improvement.
