Guidance to Resolve and Maintain Compliance

Developed by AAPACN nurse experts, the F-Tag Library On-Demand Series provides explanation and insight into the nuances of each individual F-tag, as well as steps facilities can take to attain and maintain compliance with federal regulation, including areas to review for compliance and education for staff. This series also provides presentations for newer leaders, which include guidance on how to understand a 2567, how to write a Plan of Correction, removal of Immediate Jeopardy, and understanding the Psychosocial Severity Guide.

AAPACN will release new on-demand learning modules monthly, using the same format as an AAPACN recorded webinar. Each module will be approximately 10 to 60 minutes, focusing on an individual F-tag. After you purchase the series, you’ll receive an email each month alerting you that new module(s) are available in your Learner Dashboard. The full library will consist of approximately 200 modules.

Following each module, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the requirements of each regulation
  • Implement interventions to achieve and maintain compliance with the regulation
  • Train other staff on the regulation and what is required for compliance

The F-Tag Library also includes the following tools:  

  • Immediate Jeopardy Removal Plan Template
