Session: 3.2 in the Spotlight: Managing Staffing Levels to Protect Your Organization from Litigation

When: Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. Pacific

Where: 2011 CAHF Annual Convention and Expo at Renaissance Palm Springs and Palm Springs Convention Center

Presenter: Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift

Maintaining proper staffing levels in long-term care can be difficult to achieve due to fluctuations in resident census, varying levels of resident acuity, and constant change in staff schedules. Recent Medicare cuts and Medi-Cal reductions have added pressures to do more with less, particularly in the area of staffing. In addition, lawsuits targeting staffing levels are becoming more prevalent, and California facilities are facing unannounced state audits to prove 3.2 NHPPD.

"Operating with proper staffing levels is a critical issue in long-term care today, especially as providers increase their focus on controlling costs and operating efficiently due to reimbursement reductions," stated Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "The best practices I will share during this session will provide specific steps to meet staffing targets, without over- or under-staffing, while remaining focused on delivering high quality care."
