With Thanksgiving nearly here, providers will be thinking about more than turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and how they’re going to staff the long holiday weekend. They also realize they have to be in compliance by Thursday with Phase 3 of the Requirements of Participation for the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Although some items have been postponed, others must be engaged and viable, bringing nearly the entire RoP process to a closed loop.

So while you sit down with family, colleagues and/or residents this Thursday, McKnight’s also wishes you the best for a compliant future featuring mandatory infection preventionists, trauma-informed care, staff competency considerations and much more.
