CMS Training Requirements for LTC Facilities
by Russell Sawchuk - Sunday, 9 July 2017, 4:03 PM

The US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) have issued the final rule that updates the requirements that Long-Term Care facilities must meet to participate in their programs.

We have prepared a document to identify the specific changes that will have an impact on staff training. Specifically, we are interested in what in-service and continuing education will be required to maintain and enhance nurses’ competence to provide quality health care to CMS-funded residents.

The document is attached.
