101: Unique challenges for healthcare workforce: New strategies
Audience: All audiences
The value of the healthcare workforce is typically discussed in terms of operational/clinical outcomes including shortages, recruitment & retention. The impact is even more expansive, encompassing quality, outcomes, organization data, to name a few. This engaging presentation walks attendees through the unique challenges of today’s healthcare workforce & five key strategies for leaders as they embrace the new demands faced while enhancing recruitment and retention efforts in positive outcomes.

102: Effective staff delegation
Audience: Assisted living
Effective delegation is crucial, especially with limited staff. While having nurses help in non-clinical matters may boost team morale, having them routinely work on non-clinical matters is a waste of time, money, and resources. In this session, learn how to effectively delegate tasks and responsibilities for RNs, LPNs, and unlicensed staff.

Attorneys Rebecca Coffin and Robert Rodè will discuss issues facilities face when residents' family members become threatening or harass others, as well as tips on how to communicate with family and staff in these situations. They will provide case scenarios and offer suggestions on non-legal interventions and steps to take to prohibit severe behaviors such as no trespass orders and harassment restraining orders.

104: Data security: How to prevent vicious & malicious ransomware attacks
Audience: All audiences
Are you prepared in the event that your assisted living or skilled nursing facility is hit with a ransomware attack that cuts off access to your computer systems? What can or must you do if you are suddenly unable to access your patient records, payroll records, order medications, or even access the internet? This terrifying circumstance is becoming all-too-common, but it still can catch operators unaware and unprepared. This session will discuss what to do if you are targeted.

105: What can be learned from assisted living common licensing orders
Audience: Assisted living
Let’s talk assisted living 101. This session is geared toward those just dipping their feet into the world of assisted living, and for those who want to confirm they are on track. We will cover what to expect during the survey, what the top ten survey tags are, and look at the resources available to help you be successful. Often times, our fears are of the unknown; so come to learn the components of the survey and make it “known” in your world, so you can be more survey ready and less fearful of the process.

106: Who's responsible for an SNF's revenue?
Audience: SNF/NF
This presentation will highlight the importance of each department's role in the collection of an SNF's revenue. The business office is traditionally held responsible for the collection of revenue, but other departments play a key role.
