“RN Protocols & Good Practice For New Admissions”
Date: December 13th, 2022
Time: 10:30 AM-11:50 AM
Q&A: 11:50 AM-12:00 PM
Presenters: Stephanie Figueroa/RN Consultant For IDD Waiver Services & Julie Blacklock/ IDD Waiver Consultant
For: RN’s in the HCS & TxHmL Program.
This is an especially good training session for new nurses or new providers. We will also be providing some quality assurance tools and ideas for some nursing forms and checklists the facility might like to utilize if they don’t currently have certain nursing forms or tools in place for the issues we discuss during the webinar. We will be providing some guidance to the RN about different considerations they may need to keep in mind when working with the IDD population. Some of our population is elderly, non-ambulatory, non-verbal and/or may have mental health diagnoses. In the HCS and TxHmL waiver programs, we also receive individuals who come from other types of programs, such as State Supported Living Centers, small to large private ICF’s, Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, State Hospitals, and kids who age out of CPS (Child Protective Services), so there are a lot of considerations when a new individual is admitted to the program. We hope to teach you some of the pitfalls to avoid and helpful ideas so that you can have good continuity of care for your client and a smooth transition to their new home.
