Meeting regulatory requirements for your post-acute care facility is harder than ever

The Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged post-acute care facilities, where 85% of patients are elderly and are more susceptible to the disease.1 Already facing substantial scrutiny, post-acute care facilities could soon face further regulation.

It costs your facility a great deal of money when it doesn’t meet quality targets. In fact, within 30 days of discharge, more than 20% of Medicare recipients in skilled nursing facilities return to the hospital, at a cost of more than $4 billion per year.2

You need a way to build staff knowledge, confidence, and competence to meet regulatory requirements related to quality care metrics. By doing this, you’ll avoid costly fines to your institution as well as reduce turnover.

Hospital readmissions cost Medicare $26 billion dollars a year, $17 billion of which is avoidable.3

Lippincott Advisor and Lippincott Procedures are excellent products. I like that they are regularly updated, are evidence-based, and provide links to source evidence. Now when nurses ask me for the supporting evidence, I can easily point them to it in Lippincott.

It used to be that any time a staff nurse or manager had a question about a procedure, they would call us. Now that we have Lippincott, our nurses print off the quick lists and bring them to the bedside. We hardly get any calls anymore about procedures, and our nurses now have the confidence to provide quality care. With Lippincott, our nurses know they have the most current, gold-standard way of doing things.

What we like most about Lippincott Procedures and Lippincott Advisor is that they are updated regularly. Having Lippincott, we have confidence that our procedures are current and evidence-based. Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills has helped us improve patient care, particularly with our new graduates. RNs can now review a procedure that they may have only done once in school, rather than proceed apprehensively feeling they ‘should know how to do it.
