Speaker: William Vaughan with Remedi Senior Care

Session Description: With the Mega Rule now fully implemented, it’s time to assess its impact on medication management. Are consultant pharmacists’ recommendations more likely to be accepted now that the medical director also receives them? What categories of medications have surveyors concluded meet the definition of a psychotropic drug, and  have deficiencies resulted from such determinations? In terms of antibiotic stewardship, have prescribers changed their practices? And if not, what’s been the regulatory and clinical impact? These and many other questions will be addressed by a long term care pharmacy provider (and former surveyor). Through state and national survey data analysis, the regulatory impact of the Mega Rule will be explored.
