Using staff rounding for fall prevention
Date: Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m PT / 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET
Are you making the most out of your regular resident wellness checks?
While mandatory and commonplace in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, staff rounding in assisted living does not share the same requirements, which has led to a limitation of resources to effectively implement. These regular resident checkins are optimal times to ensure not only resident comfort, but resident safety. Maximizing these checkins and developing and implementing a person-centered wellness check or rounding process in your community can lead to reduced falls, more efficient use of staff time, and happier, safer residents.
Join us to learn how staff rounding can elevate your fall programming and staff engagement. We'll highlight tools that are available to implement effective wellness checks in your community, and as always, conduct new live fall huddles to share tips for fall prevention to apply to your communities. Bring your questions for the experts.
