Join us for the next COVID-19 in LTC Office Hours on Thursday, May 7, with Telligen’s medical director, Dr. Christine LaRocca. This interactive session offers attendees the opportunity to receive answers to their questions about COVID-19 and gain awareness of available resources for implementing current CDC guidance. Attendees will also have an opportunity to share their approaches and learn from one another.
This interactive session will feature two guest speakers, Administrator Michelle Hart-Carlson, and Clinical Nurse Specialist and Infection Preventionist Stacy Strait, from Oak Trace, a LifeSpace Community in Downers Grove, Illinois. Stacy Strait is the recipient of the 2019 NADONA Antibiotic Stewardship Best Practice Leader Award. They will share their approaches to implementing CDC and CMS guidance for COVID-19 and the lessons they’ve learned. The discussion will include their approach for communicating with residents, families and staff, as well as their infection prevention strategies, including creative PPE optimization. The session will close with the Telligen team providing an overview of the recently released CMS QSO-20-28 NH Memo, Nursing Home Five Star Quality Rating System updates, Nursing Home Staff Counts, and Frequently Asked Questions.
