RCFE Certification – Change Is Coming

As if the great California’s RCFE certification wasn’t strict enough, it’s about to get harder. why do you ask? Well, you can probably figure it out without us explaining it to you, but for all of you who haven’t been in the business yet, let’s take a moment and discuss it.

We all know that the coronavirus has taken a huge toll on retirement communities, nursing homes, nursing homes and nursing homes (RCFEs). In New York, nearly 25 percent of coronavirus deaths have occurred in nursing homes. In Kirkland, Washington, we saw nearly 30 percent of seniors die from the coronavirus at one of the facilities. In California, the coronavirus has managed to make its way into a large number of certified RCFEs even though we are strictly following virus protocols.

Once the virus gets in and infects residents and staff, it spreads quickly, often before anyone notices it, by the time symptoms show up, it’s too late – so many are infected that you might as well turn your facility into covid-19 Hospital. Those overseeing RCFE certification regulations are now receiving a lot of attention from state legislators wanting answers and wondering how we’re going to prevent something like this from happening in the future.

Fortunately, regulators are working with the RCFE industry to develop new rules, procedures and protocols. There is a team already working on how to detect the spread of the virus, this virus or any other virus at an early stage with rapid tests. In the future, RCFEs will be the first to be alerted, enabling swift action to prevent such disasters. There is no doubt that RCFEs will need to have test kits, PPE and other equipment on hand for rapid deployment.

In the future, RCFE certification will be more difficult to obtain, with more rules and regulations, and increased cost and time to comply. Some in our industry believe it’s true that California is one of the toughest states for RCFE certification, but we can expect things to get more difficult because of what’s going on. While RCFE operators, state health regulators and even politicians have made some mistakes along the way, this is not the time to point fingers.

Our industry has its work done for us, and we must rise to the occasion and continue our mission to rise to the occasion stronger than ever. We will, we must, and we are ready for the challenge. Let us help you get RCFE certified and make us better and protect our most vulnerable from any future viruses.
