New CMS requirements for food, nutrition and dining

The LTC Survey Requirements for Participation are changing and SNFs will be expected to be in compliance. Food, nutrition and dining are integral components for success in the survey process. Providers must know what these changes are and what surveyors will be looking at during the survey process. The AHCA/NCAL webinar, New CMS Regulatory LTC Requirements for Food/Nutrition and Dining, on November 9 at 1 p.m. Central time, will present an overview of the key changes to put you in the “driver’s seat” for success with compliance.

Presented by Brenda Richardson, a leader in the field of dietetics and nutrition with aging, this webinar is a must-attend for dietary managers. The webinar will discuss the key changes in the LTC Survey Requirements for Food/Nutrition and Dining, review the focus areas and key revisions related to Food/Nutrition and Dining and walk through the regulatory maze of compliance.

Be sure to register in advance.
