New Jersey Bill
Starting 3/3/2021 Bill S2545 establishes certain requirements concerning rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender undesignated/non-binary, guestioning, gueer, intersex, and HIV-positive residents of long-term care facilities.
Who is mandated to take the training?
The bill requires each long-term care facility to ensure that the administrators and staff at the facility receive training, on at least a biennial basis, concerning care for GLTBTQI seniors and seniors living with HIV.
Along with the administrators and staff training, each facility is required to designate two employees, with one representing management and one representing direct care staff, who will receive in-person training within six months after the effective date of the bill, which employees will serve as points of contact at the facility concerning compliance with the provisions of the bill and will be responsible for developing the training plan for the facility.
By when must facilities comply?
One year from effective date of the bill.
How can we comply?
SAGECare’s “Creating Inclusive Communities for LGBTQ+ Older Adults-NJ” satisfies the specific requirements of this regulation and is available as an on-demand video or through our learning management system, giving your staff the flexibility to complete the training individually or as a group.
What else comes with this product?
After purchase, your facility will have access to a sign-in sheet, F.A.Q. to help facilitators answer staff questions, discussion questions, and a download for certificate of completion (part of the regulation requirement).
As an added benefit, your agency may be eligible to earn a SAGECare credential based on the amount of training completed.
