CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2011) - OnShift, a leader in web-based staff scheduling and shift management software for the healthcare industry, today announced that OnShift CEO Mark Woodka will present best practices for staffing level compliance at the QCHF Institute and CAHF Summer Conference in July 2011. Woodka will explain how long-term care facilities can achieve appropriate staffing levels to comply with California's direct care mandate of 3.2 NHPPD (nursing hours per patient day).

Session: 3.2 in the Spotlight: Managing Staffing Levels to Protect Your Organization from Litigation
When: Monday, July 18, 2011 at 10:20 a.m.
Where: QCHF Institute and CAHF Summer Conference at the Westin San Diego
Presenter: Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift

With constant fluctuations in census, residents requiring complex levels of care, and dynamic staffing conditions, maintaining appropriate levels can be difficult to achieve in long-term care. Litigators are actively targeting staffing levels, with growing numbers of lawsuits being filed. In addition, California facilities are facing unannounced state audits to prove consistent delivery of 3.2 NHPPD.

"California is leading the nation in its enforcement of staffing minimums," states Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "Maintaining appropriate staffing levels is not an easy thing to do, and there's a lot to understand across the regulations and how the state and lawyers are viewing things. Our best practices will provide specific steps to anyone looking to schedule employees and staff appropriately while remaining focused on delivering quality care."
