Vorttx Pitch Deck 2017

  1. 1. Virtual Online Tabletop Exercise VORTTX Training and Testing strives to be the premier provider of virtual staff training programs for long-term healthcare providers and other regulated industries.
  2. 2. Virtual Online Tabletop Exercise Long-term healthcare facilities are required by State and Federal licensing to train all staff on specific emergency response protocols and prove their proficiency. There is not a standard staff training program for long-term healthcare facility emergency response protocols. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) provides a complex (280 page) workbook of rules, regulations, basic outlines and worksheets for recording training responses only.
  3. 3. Virtual Online Tabletop Exercise State and Federal Regulations: • Every new long-term healthcare facility employee must be oriented and competent with emergency procedures on their first day of employment. • In addition, every department is required participate in a fire drill a minimum of once every quarter. Each department has different requirements of in-service (on the job training) each month and year. • Annually each facility has to certify to surveyors (state or federal inspectors) that every staff member is competent in safety (specifically fire).
  4. 4. Virtual Online Tabletop Exercise 2016 FEMA Reporting: • Federal regulations require that Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes have written emergency plans and provide employees with emergency preparedness training. • Most nursing homes nationwide met Federal requirements for written emergency plans and preparedness training. However, gaps in nursing home preparedness and response were found. Emergency plans lacked relevant information—including only about half of the tasks on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services checklist.
  5. 5. Virtual Online Tabletop Exercise 2016 FEMA Reporting: • Federal regulations state that facilities must “train all employees in emergency procedures when they begin to work in the facility, periodically review the procedures with existing staff, and carry out unannounced staff drills using those procedures.”
