REDLANDS, Calif. — Aug. 18, 2020 — MedTrainer, the creator of the only all-in-one learning, compliance accreditation and credentialing management suite, announces the availability of a digital toolkit designed to meet the unique compliance and learning management needs of long-term care and assisted-living facilities. The digital toolkit offers facility administrators ways to distribute critical information and automate processes necessary for meeting compliance and ensuring the safety of residents, including a special focus on COVID-19 prevention and protection.
MedTrainer’s toolkit contains a variety of easy-to-implement solutions that long-term care and assisted living facilities can use to gain better insight into their compliance and training needs. The toolkit will help facilities meet the requirements of changing regulations, such as The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid’s (CMS’) plan to assess nursing home response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the agency’s five-part plan that focuses on enhanced enforcement and transparency to improve quality and patient care.
MedTrainer’s digital toolkit enables facilities to meet this increased compliance accountability with features designed to help administrators:
- Update guidelines, including social distancing measures for residents, staff and visitors.
- Establish protocols for onboarding, training and equipment requirements.
- Organize documentation for compliance during and following CMS temporary waivers.
- Digitize policies and procedures for easy access.
- Train staff according to job function.
- Manage training for all staff with a system that sends reminder notifications of required and upcoming training.
- Quickly provide essential documentation for site visits and surveys with a convenient reporting function.
- Create a culture of safety and compliance that meets the standards of regulatory agencies and builds trust between staff and residents.
Jorge Fernandez, COO, MedTrainer, says, “Managing resident care in the midst of the current global health crisis is placing an unprecedented demand on nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. The pandemic is most heavily impacting the health of long-term care residents, disproportionately leading to serious and life-threatening illness. Ensuring that facilities—and staff—are up to date on policies and procedures that protect the health and safety of patients and residents is a driving force behind MedTrainer’s development. Together we can face the many complex challenges of compliance.”
