Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA) Webinar – Malnutrition, Obesity and PDPM: Are You Maximizing Clinical Outcomes and Revenues?
Two of more of every skilled nursing home residents are at risk for malnutrition related acute/chronic diseases and/or poor food intakes. Conversely, 1 out of every 3 skilled nursing home residents are clinically obese. Shockingly, some of our morbidly obese residents are also malnourished. This session will focus on identifying those at risk for malnutrition and morbid obesity within 24 hours of admission, and implementing immediate and long-term, cost effective nutrition plans of care to improve clinical and survey outcomes while improving resident and family satisfaction and reimbursement opportunities.
- The participants will be able to implement systems to identify residents that are at risk for both malnutrition related to chronic and acute diseases, and/or poor intakes as well as those who are morbidly obese.
- The participants will be able to develop and implement interim and ongoing cost effective plans of nutritional care to treat both malnutrition and morbid obesity that improve clinical and survey outcomes and residents’ quality of life.
- The participants will be able to identify and implement systems to immediately identify and treat both malnutrition and morbid obesity upon admission that can increase reimbursement opportunities with PDPM, as well as positive clinical and survey outcomes
