Emergency Preparedness Handbook-All Medicare/Medicaid Providers are now required to have the New Emergency Preparedness Requirements, that was implemented by November 15, 2017. Surveyors are currently being trained to know what will be considered passing survey or failing regarding the Emergency Preparedness Requirements. Any Medicare/Medicaid Provider not in compliance with the New Regulations will be cited for non-compliance and must follow standard procedure for correcting the deficiencies. As part of the new requirements each state will be given guidelines on the requirements.
This handbook is filled with information you can use to train your staff on Natural Disasters. The second part of the handbook has the information for creating an Emergency Preparedness Notebook. You can print it up, fill out the forms and sections CMS will be looking for. $34.95 Guaranteed to be accepted by Surveyors. You can even call me for assistance in filling out the manual, or attend one of the Emergency Preparedness training sessions I offer.
Other companies or consultants can’t provide you with the materials you need to be in compliance with State and CMS regulations. Just provide the information that is requested for each page, and your EPP manual will pass.
