1. Federal Regulation Overview

This chapter will review newly revised Federal Regulation being called the “Mega Rule.” Utilizing the federal regulation to implement clinical practice in the nursing home can be daunting, so this section will share strategies to grasp concepts and implement practice. The nurse should be aware of evidenced-based standards related to passing medication in the long-term care setting. This section will explore the concept of resident voice and resident-centered care and understanding how to embed this philosophy in clinical practice.

2. Facility Risk Assessment

Compliance with the revised regulations will depend on the facility’s ability to formulate a facility risk assessment. This chapter will identify ways to conduct a risk assessment and utilize this information to assure compliance in staffing education, staffing patterns and resident care decisions.
