With the onset of PDPM for skilled nursing providers, SNFs are gearing up for the changes. And while the process of change will require much time and resources from a management standpoint, operators agree that there’s one key worker demographic that providers should invest under PDPM: nurses.

Because even though the care nurses provide will stay the same, the way they document and capture all aspects of it will change. The shift to PDPM is enabling nurses to get back to their core skill sets. It allows them to focus on care for residents rather than spend a majority of time on administrative tasks. This presentation discusses the impact of PDPM on nursing staff, as well as how leadership can approach change management with this important population in mind.
