Call for Volunteers for Awards Committee 2019

Are you looking for ways to get more involved with LAI?  Do you like getting ideas from other members or becoming inspired by the amazing work of others?  If you answered yes to these questions, LAI would like to invite you to serve on the Awards Committee! 

Duties of the Awards Committee members include reviewing and scoring nominations for LAI awards and then participating in a conference call on July 12 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. to review scores and select winners.  Don’t worry if your organization intends to submit a nomination for the 2019 award cycle as we can work through a recusal process for that nomination. 

Please contact Gina Strickland to volunteer for the LAI Awards Committee.  The nominations process for 2019 awards will open later this month.


Workforce Workshop Focuses on Orientation and Onboarding 

Enthusiasm from Day 1: The First 90 Days is a full-day workforce workshop scheduled on April 16. The workshop focuses on onboarding new employees during their first 90 days in a way that connects them to your organizational values. The class is interactive and will help you implement supportive practices to help new team members perform at their highest level as quickly as possible and lay the foundation for engaged employees. Denise Scott presented a workforce workshop for LAI in December, and attendees loved it. One attendee said, “Denise brings practical ideas we can use now and a process to continue improving our organization. She combines positive energy with things that can be done in a real world.” Click here to register.

This course takes an in-depth look at external long term care regulations, survey management and compliance strategies, internal and external oversight, clinical communication, and how to leverage the RAI process in promoting regulatory compliance, financial stewardship and most importantly resident care.  Liz Davidson returns to present this boot camp which was one of the highest rated programs LAI has offered to date. Some comments from last year’s evaluations include:

~ Came away with very valuable and useful information.

~ Excellent information.

~ Very informative and current information was provided. All in all, one of the best presentations I have attended.
