CDR Health Receives 50,000 Vaccines: Focused on Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Hillsborough Counties
PLEASE NOTE: CDR Health was contracted by the state and is focused on getting residents vaccinated as quickly as possible. That's why their consent form is simple and does not require a signature. CDR Health is only requiring facilities to acknowledge if consent was given by the resident, healthcare surrogate or other authorized person. They are attempting to streamline the consent process and not create further delays.
BUT . . .
THE COMMUNITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING PROPER CONSENT including signatures from residents or their representatives. Please make sure to keep a copy of the signed consent form in your records. The responsibility for validation is on the community and not on CDR Health or the State of Florida. If you can only get verbal acknowledgement from a resident or their representative, document, witness, and make sure to keep record of acknowledgement just in case AHCA audits your records.
The contact from CDR Health will be joining us for our weekly Zoom call on Wednesday, January 13 at 3:00 p.m. We have also asked someone from the Division of Emergency Management to join us as well. Watch your email for more information.
