The SNF Leader’s Guide to Occupancy & Mix: Addressing Current Challenges and Preparing for PDPM! — Lou Ann Brubaker, President, Brubaker Consulting

Lou Ann Brubaker is the Founder and President of Brubaker Consulting, a company providing management and marketing educational assistance and programming. Since 1988, she has worked with hundreds of senior care providers and taught thousands of senior care professionals, including Executive Directors, Administrators and Directors of Nursing, RNs, LPNs and CNAs, physicians, marketers, HR staff, dietitians, therapists, customer service staff, as well as individuals at the C-suite (executive) level of their organizations.

Clients include the nation’s leading direct senior care providers, ranging from multi-facility chains and CCRCs of 1500+ residents to individual SNF and ALF facilities of less than twenty. Her expertise is also valued highly by senior care ancillary services companies. For more than 20 years she has provided sales education programs to ancillary organizations wishing to expand their market share within the senior care environments.

Lou Ann Brubaker’s diverse professional experience ranges from administration of a senior citizen utility assistance program, the transitioning of an in-house advertising agency to a revenue- generating division and the management of more than 35 satellite operations and 500 sales representatives within a senior care products organization. Just prior to founding her own company, she directed the North American marketing for an organization that in three years grew to become the world’s largest provider of online clinical, scientific and technical information during which time she served on the leadership team that strategically re-crafted the international pricing of online information.

In addition to ongoing education offered by Lou Ann Brubaker, some of her current endeavors of interest include culture change within a 100-year-old international healthcare organization located in 35 countries, the crafting of a state-of-the-art volunteer initiative and technology model within a non-profit, multi-site CCRC organization (increasing volunteer value 150% in less than one year), and the re-branding of the customer service program within one of America’s largest continuum of care providers.

A graduate of Kent State University (B.S., Public Policy/Political Science), Ms. Brubaker is Past-Chair and Past-Director of the Board of Trustees for The Beacon Institute (the educational affiliate of Mid-Atlantic Lifespan, the largest senior care association in Maryland). She also served as a nationally elected Director of the Business & Professional Women’s Foundation.

Emergency Preparedness: Is Your Facility Prepared for The Next Disaster? — Paul Peterson, PharmD Director, Emergency Preparedness Program, State of Tennessee Department of Health

Paul E. Petersen, PharmD, is the Director of the Tennessee Department of Health’s Emergency Preparedness Program. He serves as principal for Tennessee’s federally-funded Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) Healthcare Preparedness (HPP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) cooperative agreements. He oversees the operations and strategic direction of approximately 120 staff members statewide.

Dr. Petersen serves as lead in Tennessee’s response to all public health and medical emergencies. Tennessee has experienced a wide range of threats and public health emergencies requiring decisive action by our HPP-PHEP funded Emergency Preparedness program staff, health care coalitions, and partners. Events of the past five years include the 2012 Fungal Infections Outbreak, 2014-15 Ebola, 2015 Blount County Train Derailment, 2016 Zika Infections, the 2016 Gatlinburg Wildfire response, the 2017 Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria responses, and the 2018-19 Hepatitis A response. Each event has presented opportunities to demonstrate the life-saving impact of the infrastructure built by preparedness funding over time.

Originally from California, he earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy at the University of the Pacific Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Dr. Petersen completed his postgraduate pharmacy practice residency at Saint Thomas Hospital in Nashville where he also served as the Clinical Operating Room Pharmacist prior to his move to state government in 2005.
