Directed In-Service Training (DIT):
With the updated guidance from CMS related to increased oversight in nursing centers, remedies including Directed In-Service Training (DIT) are becoming more common. This increasing oversight will provide surveyors the opportunity to direct focused reviews of quality-of-life and quality of care concerns, and more citations in these care areas are likely.
Our experienced LeaderStat consulting team serves clients by assisting them with development and implementation of their DIT. LeaderStat consultants, in conjunction with the nursing center, take immediate action to assist the center with implementing a DIT as outlined for focusing on specific deficient practices identified on their CMS-2567. This will include a review of existing and/or new applicable policies and procedures. The DIT must also focus on the specific needs and characteristics of the resident population. We will assist with skills/return demonstration(s) where appropriate, interact with the trainees in real time including a live Q&A, and provide education on the plan for sustaining compliance.
Because, in most instances, the organization or individuals providing the DIT may not be an employee, corporate staff, or have directed ownership in the center’s organization, our qualified subject matter experts will meet the requirements of your DIT.
We offer flexibility in scheduling and prompt responses to inquiries. To date, all clients who contracted for DIT services have regained substantial compliance with the assistance of the LeaderStat Consulting team.
