CMS Emergency Preparedness Update: 

The Home Health Toolkit is now available from DHS. The toolkit provides facilities an overview of the requirements for their provider type, as well as sample templates that can be utilized in planning efforts. Where tools or templates were't readily available, the toolkit provides planning worksheets featuring a list of example questions to assist facilities in thinking through relevant issues. These questions can be used to help facilities draft plans and policies. 

Access and download the toolkit here.

Click here to access the DHS Emergency Preparedness Rule webpage. 

Questions regarding the federal regulation for emergency preparedness can be directed to your regional healthcare coalition coordinator. View coordinator contact information here.

Please note toolkits are intended for advisory purposes only, and do not guarantee any outcome during survey visits. Facilities are solely responsible for meeting CMS requirements. 

WiAHC will continue to monitor and provide updates regarding the CMS Emergency Preparedness as they become available.
