Tennessee Support for Culture Change

Survey Agency

State survey agency representatives regularly attend Tennessee Eden Alternative Coalition meetings. The agency conducts regular training of surveyors as to what to expect in an Edenizing or Culture Change facility. There used to be a Culture Change Task Force hosted by the Assistant Commissioner, but the entire management team from the Commissioner down has turned over so it is unknown at this time as to whether this will continue. The Coalition has a $50,000 grant from the State CMP money that funds 10 grants of $5k each for the implementation of culture change and the Eden Alternative at Tennessee nursing homes.
