When home care agencies hire clinicians with little to no home care experience it certainly is a challenge to orient new staff to all the home care policies, procedures, regulations and OASIS. A tremendous amount of time and resources are needed for the opportunity to education the clinician. CMS created four training videos that are related to OASIS-C and process measure items. These videos may be a good resource for home care orientation.
They are available on YouTube as follows:
The Process Based Quality Improvement (PBQI) process.
Accurately Responding to Process Items: Intervention Synopsis (M2400)
Accurately Responding to Process Items: Plan of Care Synopsis (M2250)
Accurately Responding to Process Items: Fall Risk Assessment (M1910)
