MedTrainer Offers Specialized Content for Extended and Skilled Care Facilities
The MedTrainer all-in-one compliance management suite streamlines life safety and emergency preparedness plans
REDLANDS, Calif. – Jan. 15, 2020 – MedTrainer, the award-winning software provider for training, compliance and credentialing, announces updates and additions to the MedTrainer platform to help Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities meet compliance requirements for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) strategic initiative to Ensure Safety and Quality in Nursing Homes and Skilled Nursing Facilities. MedTrainer’s platform provides comprehensive resources to address CMS requirements, including tools to conduct infection prevention risk assessments, online training for staff to assist residents with making informed decisions, emergency preparedness plans, ensuring a safe environment, as well as identifying and reporting abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
MedTrainer’s compliance learning management solution (LMS) provides a variety of resources and documentation tools to avoid issues that often lead to findings by surveyors that result in deficiencies and serious consequences related to findings of “Immediate Jeopardy.” MedTrainer’s comprehensive solution makes it easier to mitigate risks for organizations and employees to align on CMS, OSHA and HIPAA requirements, while saving time and precious resources by consolidating training requirements and essential documentation in one platform.
The award-winning training is just one of the many benefits that MedTrainer has to offer. The online training platform allows staff to complete courses at their own pace, with useful reports that managers can use to reinforce federal and state compliance requirements. Notably, MedTrainer’s LMS has developed innovative courses dedicated to CMS requirements, such as:
- Training on the CMS Final Rules for life safety and emergency preparedness requirements.
- Identifying cognitive changes, including the signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia, from early to late stages.
- General guidelines for compliance and administering hospice and end-of-life care that ensure patients understand their rights and options.
- Learning how to go beyond advanced directives into care goals, with a focus on engaging the patient in care decisions to preserve the dignity and wishes of the patient.
- Preventing and identifying intentional infliction of harms.
MedTrainer COO, Jorge Fernandez, said, “We’re seeing a growing need in long-term and skilled care facilities to find a balance between the administrative demands of compliance and patient care. We strive to bring organizations greater efficiency in training and compliance management that ultimately results in more time and improved quality care for patients.”
