Will your current psychotropic medication practices result in a successful survey?
Psychotropic medication management continues to be a significant focus of CMS guidance and DOH Surveys. The role of the prescriber has shifted from prescribing medications to a more conservative approach of de-prescribing psychotropic medications where appropriate. Your facility’s effective management of psychotropic medications can lead to improved care, better quality metrics, decreased pharmacy costs, improved Five-Star rating, and reduced risk of tags.
Reducing psychotropic medication use in the SNF setting is achievable, but will require facilities to be proactive in integrating care and establishing a facility culture that supports residents with behavioral health issues. This webinar focuses on developing clinical practices, facility procedures, and documentation which support a proactive approach to managing psychotropic medication.
