With the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Intermediate Care Facility for Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (ICF/IDDs) need to take steps to ensure compliance with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Appendix Z Emergency Preparedness Regulations which require ICF/IDDs to analyze their responses to, and maintain documentation of, all drills, tabletop exercises, and emergency events.
This webinar will walk attendees through the After Action Review process as a strategy to ensure compliance, provide an overview of the regulatory requirements (including the March 2021 updates in the State Operations Manual Guidance for Appendix Z), and share lessons learned in how to conduct a meaningful COVID-19 After Action Review and report. Participants will walk away with tips and tools to improve their organization’s preparedness/response and improve their Appendix Z compliance.
This webinar is most appropriate for ICF/IDD employees responsible for Emergency Preparedness Regulatory compliance to include Qualified Intellectual Disability Professionals (QIDPs), administrators, supervisory staff, and safety officers. A recording will be made available to all registrants.
