New Training Materials Available on Transfer/Discharge and the Revised Nursing Home Regulations

August 24, 2018

Consumer Voice and NORC have created several new training materials on the topic of transfer and discharge from a nursing home.  The materials are based on the revised nursing home regulations.

The new materials can be used together as an educational toolkit for training by and for Ombudsman program representatives, for members of resident and family councils, facility in-service training and community education.

  • Prezi - A Prezi is a visual storytelling alternative to a PowerPoint presentation.  The Transfer/Discharge Prezi uses the map-like layout to provide information on protections against inappropriate discharges, your rights if you're being discharged, and how to get help and take action.  The Prezi is available as a video with a voiceover or as a clickable presentation without the voiceover to be used with this script.

  • PowerPoint - This PowerPoint can be used for training purposes.
  • Fact Sheet - This fact sheet was developed for long-term care consumers to inform them about their rights regarding involuntary discharges. This fact sheet can also be used in training by and for Ombudsman program representatives, for members of resident and family councils, facility-in-service training, and community education.
  • Online Training Center Course on Transfer/Discharge - Learn about transfers and discharges in the new e-course.  Go to consumervoice.mrooms.net to access the course (you must create an account or sign in to see courses).

All materials are available on the Consumer Voice website here and on the NORC website here.
