Nursing Home Recommendations on COVID-19 Discussed at Sept. 30 Webinar
Posted on September 23, 2020
The Michigan Nursing Home COVID-19 Task Force and the Center for Health and Research Transformation (CHRT) recently endorsed recommendations to inform the state’s response for a potential second wave of COVID-19. The MHA will host a member webinar at 10 a.m. ET Sept. 30 to review the recommendations, which have been submitted to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
Betty Chu, MD, senior vice president and associate chief clinical officer/chief quality officer, Henry Ford Health System, served as the co-chair of the task force and will share an overview of the group’s 28 recommendations. Members will also hear from Marianne Udow, executive director, CHRT, on the recommendations her organization submitted to the MDHHS on the regional nursing home hub approach and additional strategies to better prepare the long-term care community.
The state has not yet acted on either set of recommendations, so this is a good opportunity for members to hear discussion and perspective on what actions may be taken in the coming months related to COVID-19 and long-term care facilities. There is no cost to attend the webinar, and members may register by contacting Naomi Rice at the MHA. Those with questions on this topic may contact Brittany Bogan at the MHA.
