Skilled nursing facilities must be careful-no longer can administrators assume that competency of staff is handled through routine training. Facilities need proper competency assessment and documentation, and management must always be up to date. Competency-Based Care & Facility Assessments: A Compliance Guide for F726 and F838 provides guidance on assessing what your facility needs and determining whether staff are meeting those needs.

CMS updated F-tag 726 and F-tag 838, which require facilities to complete facility assessments annually-to identify specific competencies staff need, and to ensure adequate training and education. This book helps leaders tie competency into staff accountability and provides a road map for new competency development.

With an explanation of how to stay compliant, how to properly conduct assessments, and how to develop a competency-based training program, plus more than 100 competency assessments, forms, and checklists, this resource is everything long-term care leadership needs.

This book features:

  • Training for staff educators and managers on performing competency validation
  • Assessment tools to develop your nurses' and CNAs' skill sets for more than 100 competencies
  • Time-saving strategies and a template for conducting a facility assessment per Conditions of Participation requirements
  • Guidance for mitigating risk of survey deficiencies associated with nursing staff competency and facility assessments (F726 and F838)
  • Tips for differentiating between orientation checklists and skills checklists
