- TAHC&H Virtual Event | Spring Conference | Recorded for On-Demand Access
- Presentation Date | May 13, 2021
Program Description: Homebound patients deserve an opportunity to receive vaccines
in their own home and several laws and regulations govern home care on the best practices of this option. This informative program
provides practical guidance on the regulatory and policy expectations of an effective vaccination program at your agency.
While agencies are able to administer many vaccines including influenza, Hepatitis B,
pneumonia and perform TB testing, via Texas Administrative Code ch. 558.303, there is legislation moving through the Texas
Legislative process right now that once signed by our Governor, will allow home health agencies to administer the COVID-19
vaccine and any FDA approved or authorized Vaccine created to mitigate or treat a communicable disease. In this program, you
will not only learn about CDC Guidance on storage, handling, transport and administration requirements of vaccines, but you
will have plenty of take away tools to bolster your policies and logs and leave confident on how to bill for these services.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
