The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has promulgated a new regulation requiring Assisted Living Residences (ALRs), Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs), and Residential Care Facilities for the Intellectual Disabilities (RCF/IDs) to implement a Quality Management Program (QMP) in order to retain or be granted licensure to operate. The QMP must include, but is not limited to:
- Risk assessment for all reportable incidents occurring within the facility
- Specified personnel responsible for implementing the QMP and for reporting on it
- Reporting methods for all incidents
- Investigation and analysis strategies for incident management
- Corrective action plans for preventing incident reoccurrence
- Follow-up methods on implemented corrective actions
To ensure your facility meets the regulatory requirements, The Society is offering a series of Quality Management Program Compliance Trainings this winter. Trainings will help your facility analyze your existing plans and procedures, identify plan deficiencies, and develop fully compliant plans in time for your next survey. Our sessions are designed around meeting you where your facility is, whether you are looking to perfect an existing plan, tweak select sections to achieve compliance or are starting from scratch, you can choose what sessions you need. Register for just a single course, all the way up to eight sessions. Individuals completing eight sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for continuing education.
All sessions will be held at Colorado Gerontological Society, 1330 Leyden St, Conference Room (Room 109), Denver, CO 80220.
Develop quality management skills using SMART goals, the mission statement, current rules, and the 9 elements to develop a data-driven QMP plan based on survey results, occurrence reports, and overall assessment of business practices.
