Trish Richardson, MSN, BSBA, RN, NE-BC, CMSRN, Director of Post-Acute Care Solutions at Relias, a healthcare training and performance solutions company, discusses the recently announced nursing home reforms and steps that nurses and post-acute care facilities can take to address some of the new requirements around nurse competencies and the intensified scrutiny around issues such as abuse or neglect, infection control and other care quality issues such as falls and pressure injuries. She talks about how facilities can enhance their skill competencies for clinicians, including improving their procedures to define and record competence so that they can readily provide the information in a survey or audit.
