Long-Term Care Administrator’s Boot Camp

Course Overview

The Long-Term Care Administrator’s Boot Camp offers skilled nursing facility administrators a review of Medicare regulations and best practices for ensuring the provision of high-quality services, resident satisfaction, quality survey outcomes, and proper payments. Specifically, The Long-Term Care Administrator’s Boot Camp focuses on how Medicare regulations guide clinical and financial operations, and explains the role of the administrator in admissions, documentation, MDS, billing, coding, compliance and ethics, and quality improvement.

This includes how to delegate appropriately, build the necessary infrastructure of quality improvement teams, analyze each facility’s resident population needs and risks, and implement effective systems and processes to achieve regulatory compliance. Administrators can expect to learn how to lead and manage facilities to regulatory compliance and to avoid survey issues, claims audits, and improper Medicare payments.
