Texas Health Care Association (THCA) Webinar – Janet Mckee presents – Q1C: Malnutrition, Obesity and PDPM: Are you Maximizing Clinical Outcomes and Revenues?


Monday, September 21, 2020 1:30 PM CST




Within every skilled nursing home, two or more residents are at risk for malnutrition related acute/chronic diseases and/or poor food intake. 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.


Learning Objectives


  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
