Apr 5: (Seminar) LeadingAge DC, LeadingAge MD–The Nuts & Bolts of the New LTC Survey Process

Learn about the new Survey Process implemented by CMS in the fall of 2017. Survey readiness is a critical element of overall operational controls and is essential to success. The goal of understanding the nuts and bolts of the long-term care survey process is less about annual recertification and more about structural compliance. Facilities that maintain an approach of survey readiness are focused on key compliance elements and are consistently prepared for unannounced visits because of a complaint.
