Estimated time to complete: 3 hours

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) play a vital role in the care of our most vulnerable populations. Maintaining accurate medical records in the SNF setting is important for both quality of patient care, as well as compliance with regulatory bodies. For this week’s assignment, you will demonstrate your knowledge of medical record management in the SNF environment.

A local assisted living facility has decided to expand, with the addition of a skilled nursing facility adjacent to their current residential structure. You have been hired as a consultant to oversee the planning and implementation of medical records compliance. The facility owners and managers have a business background and are not familiar with the rules and restrictions that are applicable to SNFs.

Write a 2-3 page executive summary for the owners and managers, including the following information:

  • Regulatory bodies and their roles (bullet

    points
    are acceptable)
  • Primary payers, and their payment models (bullet points are acceptable)
  • How patient records should be maintained (i.e. paper, electronic, what technologies and equipment will be needed).
  • What information must be included in the record for every patient.
  • Liability issues to be aware of, and how to avoid them.
  • Include a minimum of three references, in APA format, on a separate page.

Please review the rubric to ensure that your assignment meets criteria.
