Many nursing facilities will have active skilled units with high turnover. A percentage of these patients will remain for long-term care. Oftentimes, practitioners may overlook the basic patient rights as there is more focus on disease and process of care. Practitioners need to be reminded that these patients are being admitted to a home, some permanently, and need to keep patients and their rights in focus.
This live activity will review the basic patient rights and responsibilities for both attendings and medical directors. After discussing the basic intent of the regulations in honoring resident rights, the presenter will also discuss the many rights of residents in further detail. Additionally, the presenter will review Care Matters, the national voice for residents in long-term care.
The overall goal of this live activity is to enhance knowledge and ultimately improve competency for practitioners who manage patients in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC) settings.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to –
Explain basic intent of resident rights.
Describe various resident rights in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC).
