This webinar will provide information to help you comply with the unique CMS emergency preparedness requirements for home health agencies. HHAs are granted many exceptions from hospital emergency preparedness standards, yet HHAs have a critical role to play in a collaborative response to disasters and other emergency situations.
Representatives from the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals will discuss emergency plan policies and procedures HHAs need to have in place; what needs to be regularly reviewed and updated in your documented emergency plans and communication plans; and emergency preparedness training, testing, drills and exercises that are required to prepare your staff to comply with the CMS emergency preparedness rule.
