In November of 2021, CMS issued updated guidelines for state survey processes with an intentional focus on quality of life and quality care delivery. The memo outlines specific changes to COVID-19 survey activities and includes heightened oversight in nursing homes.
While the initial focus of this guidance is on skilled nursing, it’s likely that increased scrutiny is going to quickly carry over into all post-acute care settings. Is your facility or agency ready? Can your current compliance program successfully navigate what promises to be a challenging compliance year? Are you ready for your regulatory close-up?
