CAAs: Why You Need to Care About Care Areas Assessments
Join us to review not just the CAAs as it relates to the RAI process, but also to have a real discussion on why CAAs are important and often forgotten. Let’s explore what it takes to be a successful CAA writer and when we need to go beyond the CAAs for resident care. We will discuss the relationship between CAAs, RAI and regulatory compliance, but most importantly how this improves the quality of life for our residents.
