Are You Ready for Your Annual Survey?
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
1:00pm – 2:30pm
For some nursing facilities it has been close to two years since their last annual survey. The focus for most nursing facilities has been on infection control and caring for residents with COVID-19 and keeping residents and staff safe. Now that COVID-19 infections have decreased and annual surveys have resumed, nursing facilities should be prepared for when DPH surveyors show up at your door. This presentation will be a refresher on the annual survey process and will include a review of clinical pathways of focused areas, strategies, and best practices to prepare for surveys. In addition, trends in recent surveys and what plans need to be put in place to ensure compliance in these areas will be reviewed.
•Identify elements that need to be updated in preparation for an annual survey.
•Understand how to access the clinical pathways and utilize them to prepare for an annual survey.
•Identify F tags that have been a focus in past surveys and strategies to avoid citations in these areas.
