SR-2 - New Survey? No Problem!

Monday, October 8
3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
CE: NAB: 1.5 | Nurses 1.5

SNFs and nursing facilities must be in compliance with the requirements in 42 CFR Part 483, Subpart B, to receive payment under Medicare and/or Medicaid. The Long Term Care Survey Process, or LTCSP, is a resident-centered, outcome-oriented inspection that relies on a case-mix stratified sample of residents to gather information about the facility’s compliance with participation requirements. One year into the implementation of the new survey, often referred to as the hybrid survey, many providers are still learning how to successfully navigate their health inspection. In this session, we will detail the hybrid survey process used by state surveyors and review trends we have seen in the past year in terms of tags cited more frequently on a national basis and at a regional level. This interactive lecture will also provide attendees with strategies and practices that not only help providers improve survey performance but also can be used to fulfill requirements to meet the five elements of QAPI. Combining these initiatives will help providers to come into compliance more efficiently, and more completely, with less time, effort, and energy required from staff.
