On Monday, May 4, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), with support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, is launching the COVID-19 Rapid Response Network for Nursing Homes. The network is designed to support nursing home leadership, staff, residents and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rapid Response Network will feature a daily 20-minute National Nursing Home Huddle to provide real-time, pragmatic solutions that can be implemented in nursing homes today to solve many of the key problems brought about or exacerbated by COVID-19.
Registration requires you create a free IHI account
Call topics will reflect issues identified as most pressing by those providing care for nursing home residents including: personal protective equipment (PPE), COVID-19 testing, hospital to nursing home transfers, staff illness and absence, and staff attrition.
Please join us for our first daily 20-minute National Nursing Home Huddle on Monday, May 4 at 12:00pm ET/9:00am PST. The huddle will take place at the same time every weekday going forward.
Benefits of Participation Include:
- Immediate access to specific, pragmatic guidance on clinical and operational issues confronting the nursing home community today. Guidance will be focused, and ready to implement.
- Ability to speak with collective voice to federal and state policy makers, regulators, healthcare systems and others to help remove policy and regulatory barriers to mission-critical operational challenges.
- Access to tools and materials to help explain the work of nursing homes and promote participation in the COVID-19 Rapid Response Network for Nursing Homes. These tools will aid nursing homes to communicate with local media outlets about efforts to serve and protect residents and staff.
