CMS issued the Reform of Requirements for LTC Facilities: Final Rule in November 28, 2016 with some requirements due at that time known as Phase I. Phase 2 is in effect as of November 28, 2017 and Phase 3 comes in November 2019.  Knowing regulations is foundational; homes are held accountable to them. Learn these new CMS requirements – what’s new and what remains, as well as many culture change wins.  Many person centered care/culture change practices have now risen to the level of regulation. Culture change practices have always and continue to provide links, leverages and a leg up in meeting the regulatory requirements, position you to remain compliant and often cost little to nothing.
