Whether you were in a quality indicator survey or traditional survey state, you will want to participate in this virtual workshop. This training will provide you with the knowledge to thrive, not just survive, in the new survey process. You’ll receive a walk-through of the surveyor side, and then you’ll be ready to prioritize your pre-, during-, and post-survey provider responsibilities. You’ll get information on the CMS-required facility tasks and pathways that will be utilized both offsite and onsite. You will also learn how to prepare your residents and staff so they know what to expect before the surveyors are at your door. And you’ll find out how building your survey readiness toolkit is the key to your success.
