The Health Quality Innovation Network (HQIN) offers tools and resources to help nursing homes deliver the best possible care to their residents. To prepare facilities for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) COVID-19 Focused Survey, we have created a “COVID-19 Focused Survey Readiness Book,” a comprehensive checklist intended to help facilitate a smoother survey. This three-page resource outlines the required entrance documents as well as additional resources that may be requested during the survey. Having these documents in-hand before the survey is initiated will ensure your facility is well prepared for the visit.
Thank you to all the nursing homes in our network and access the country for all you are doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep your residents and staff safe!
