Location: Meridian Center 1420 E. Broadway Ct. Newton, KS

Program Overview: This comprehensive program will be presented by Stan Szpytek in two segments during the full day program. 

Segment #1- Emergency Preparedness Concepts and Compliance:
The Emergency Preparedness Concepts and Compliance segment of the program will cover the essential elements of the emergency and disaster planning continuum including preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery based on new CMS requirements that are scheduled to be implemented by November 15, 2017. The presentation will focus on the new requirements with strong emphasis on the main elements of compliance including risk analysis, policy and procedure development, communications, training / exercises and cooperation / collaboration.

Comprehensive information will be presented on the necessity of “All Hazards Planning” and utilization of a trusted emergency management model known as the Incident Command System (ICS) and specifically, the Nursing Home Incident Command System (NHICS) as it pertains to LTC facilities.

Segment #2: Tabletop Exercise (TTX):
A facilitated tabletop exercise (TTX) will be conducted as part of the second segment of the program providing attendees with the opportunity to participate in a scenario-based exercise with their peers. Based on an escalating scenario, attendees will be broken into small groups (no more than 8 at each table) to act an Incident Management Team (IMT) and work through a scenario that will be presented by the instructor in three modules. Each IMT will use Incident Command System concepts to manage a common scenario. During the TTX, injects may be added and the group will be required to “report out” on their progress at various times during the scenario as dictated by the facilitator. In accordance with new CMS requirements, attendees should be able to capture their participation in this TTX to help illustrate compliance in collaboration / cooperation / training / exercise with other “like” facilities.
