Prepare for Surveys & Responding to Adverse Surveys/Licensure Action:

Governmental oversight and scrutiny of nursing homes is at an all-time high. The provider community has seen a major overhaul of the federal requirements of participation for long-term care facilities and an increase in the imposition of civil money penalties by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Pennsylvania Auditor General has released a new audit of DOH and its oversight of nursing homes and DOH continues to move toward the development of updated state nursing facility licensure regulations. This session will address strategies and best practices for nursing facilities to consider in preparing for a survey and pitfalls to avoid during a survey. The session will also explore the appeal options and strategies available to nursing facility providers with respect to challenging deficiencies and/or the imposition of sanctions/remedies in response to an adverse survey, including a focus on the criteria needed to evidence past noncompliance. This webinar titled “Prepare for Surveys & Responding to Adverse Surveys/Licensure Action​” was provided by Tanya Daniels Harris, Esquire of Latsha, Davis & Marshall Attorneys at Law on October 11, 2019 and can be used for education and training.
