By Caralyn Davis, Staff Writer - September 11, 2018

The top five most commonly cited F-tags in the new Long-term Care Survey Process (LTCSP) haven’t changed much since Feb. 26, when AADNS first took a look at the data available in QCOR, the Quality, Certification, and Oversight Reports site of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). F880 (Infection Prevention and Control) maintains its position as the most frequently cited new survey tag across the country. In addition. F880 is the third most-cited new F-tag with a severity level of F or above, as well as the 10th most-cited tag with a severity level of J, K, or L (immediate jeopardy).
