Service and Performance Requirements

    A Competent Harmony Healthcare Respiratory Professional (CHHI-Respiratory) is an interdisciplinary team member who successfully completes this 3 Day intensive, clinically founded training, geared towards providing and documenting outstanding patient care while understanding regulatory requirements and reimbursement related to Respiratory Therapy in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) setting. This program is interactive with a focus on practical application for the clinical staff and interdisciplinary team.

    The negative effects of chronic respiratory illness on day-to-day quality of life are well documented, and with respiratory infections, COPD and CHF exacerbations as the leading causes of 30 and 180 day re-hospitalizations, the benefits of a strong Respiratory Therapy program in the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) is undeniable. While the input of a Licensed Respiratory Therapist is valuable, comprehensive respiratory assessments and therapeutic respiratory interventions are well within the scope of practice of a licensed nurse. This program uses a holistic approach to provide the specific clinical training in the modalities of therapeutic respiratory interventions on a foundation that includes the clinical rationales for and the potential benefits of Respiratory Therapy.

    The HHI Respiratory 3 day course offers participants a comprehensive understanding of Respiratory Therapy in the context of:

    Clinical Benefits of Respiratory Therapy Program
    Clinical Indications for Respiratory Therapy
    Mechanics of Respiratory Assessment
    Therapeutic Respiratory Interventions
    Program Development and Implementation
    Documenting Respiratory Therapy

                        

    Recommended Audience

    Nursing Directors, Nurse Managers, and Nurses providing care in the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) setting, MDS Coordinators, Lead Respiratory Therapists, Rehabilitation Directors and Managers, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Administrators.
