Product Description

Tips to Put in Place Your Emergency Preparedness, Training & Testing Plan Before November 15, 2017

Surveyors will begin evaluating your emergency preparedness plan on November 15, 2017. Are you prepared? Even though it is part of your Conditions of Participation, this portion will go into effect before January, 2018! You need to have certain conditions met before November, or you will be out of compliance.

In this interactive session with expert speaker J’non Griffin, RN MHA WCC, HCS-D, HCS-C, HCS-H, COS-C, you will learn what you need to do to be prepared to take care of your patients during an emergency and you will walk away with information about activities to meet those conditions.

You will learn what policies and protocols related to emergency preparedness, training, and testing will need to be in place BEFORE November. This is not an easy process, and will take time to get together. Since it is now part of the Conditions of Participation, you will be responsible for ensuring it is completed, or face deficiencies and possibly even sanctions.

You will be able to have the steps in place for a proper emergency preparedness assessment, plan, training and testing. J’non will discuss needed items to include in your policies, and what needs to be completed prior to November for you to be in compliance.
