Description
 
Federal regulations require that Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing homes have written emergency plans and provide employees with emergency preparedness training. A 2006 report about nursing homes that experienced hurricanes found that emergency plans lacked many provisions recommended by experts. In response, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued guidance checklists for emergency planning of health care facilities, long-term care (LTC) ombudsman programs, and State survey agencies (SA). This study  assess edemergency preparedness and response of nursing homes that experienced more recent disasters. Most nursing homes nationwide met Federal requirements for written emergency plans and preparedness training. However, the study identified many of the same gaps in nursing home preparedness and response that were found in the 2006 report. Includes recommendations. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
