Don't Scramble When the State Shows Up: Maintaining Annual Requirements for PAS and Private Duty Agencies
Reviews minimum requirements, and presents when it's best for agencies to do more than the minimum!
- TAHC&H Event | Spring Virtual Conference | Recorded for On-Demand Access
- Presentation Date | May 12, 2022
Program Description: When keeping up with the daily operations of home care; client management, Covid-19 protocols, and just
getting people to show up, the more mundane tasks and less-pressing regulatory requirements can easily take a back seat. We all learned what's required of us when
we first opened, but for agencies with no designated compliance officer, some of these necessary items get shoved in the trunk until "State's in the building".
This session reviews some of the minimum requirements, and presents when it's best for our agencies to do more than the minimum.

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.
