Compliance with SOM regulations related to staff competency requires nurse leaders to tailor a training and education plan for staff specific to their facility’s resident population. The regulations require nursing staff that not only is sufficient but also has the appropriate competencies and skills sets to provide nursing and related services to assure resident safety. Ensuring your staff is competent can be challenging. Where do you begin? How will you hire competent staff? What does competency look like during day-to-day clinical operations? This session will provide attendees with practical tips and strategies to address staff competency and teach them how to use the facility assessment to direct staff education and training.
