Introduction to the Survey Process

The long-term care survey process can be very time-consuming and stressful for the Director of Nursing while the surveyors are on-site. This session will provide an overview of what to expect during the on-site survey, to prepare both mentally and physically.

  • Identify key tasks that surveyors will complete during the on-site recertification survey.
  • Understand the process for completing CMS-802 and CMS-672 forms.
  • Develop strategies for effective interview skills with LTC surveyors. 
3:30-5:15 p.m. ET
MDS Overview, Regulations & Resident Centered Care Planning

A key component of reimbursement, quality measures, and performance indicators is the Minimum Data Set (MDS). The Director of Nursing must have a basic understanding of the MDS process for quality assurance and performance improvement, and be a resource to the MDS Coordinator.
  • Differentiate between each MDS Item Set/Section including assessment reference periods.
  • Identify where to locate information in the RAI manual as a reference to completing the MDS.
  • Develop resident-centered care plans based on the MDS coding.
