Staying up to date with current regulations is an ongoing challenge. But now the tides are changing even more quickly as reimbursement, quality measures and consumer demands evolve dramatically.
The major themes of the changes revolve around quality of life and include:

  • Quality of Care
  • Person-Centered Care
  • Competency-Based Care
  • Facility Assessment
  • Systemic & Systematic Approaches
  • Reimbursement Changes

New F-Tags, E-Tags and Surveyor Guidance language are all playing a role in evolving the processes and documentation needed for your community. How providers assess, choose, manage, check competency and maintain their environment and equipment will be considerations for surveyors when determining how providers are meeting residents’ needs.


Here are a few ways you can help enhance staff competencies and capture measurable data to meet the demands of changing regulations.

Continuing Education

Leverage webinars and training videos to enhance staff knowledge. Discover informative content from Direct Supply’s clinical, risk management and product experts, like these:
