The presentation by Fogg and Isele will include a review and update on reporting requirements for nursing facilities and assisted living residences as they relate to resident incidents, abuse and neglect, and nursing practices. Included will be a discussion of new requirements under the Violence Prevention in Health Care Act, which became law on Jan. 3, 2008, and the regulations under the Patient Safety Act, which were promulgated on March 3, 2008.
