Phase 1 Mega-Rule Training: Learn What the Surveyors Learn

By Caralyn Davis, Staff Writer - December 08, 2016

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has launched a training course that allows nursing homes to receive the same education as surveyors for Phase 1 implementation of the revised Medicare/Medicaid conditions of participation (aka the mega-rule). While directors of nursing services (DNSs) and other key managers should take the course in full, AADNS has outlined the training materials so that DNSs know what to expect and can more easily make decisions about what information needs to flow down to staff.
