Overview

"[The book] lists all the federal requirements that are evaluated by state surveyors during the annual survey visit to nursing homes and for complaint visits. The exhibit section contains forms used by surveyors to gather data during the survey visit. Visually, the format makes the regulations easy to read. If nursing home staff used the book to prepare for a survey, they would be well prepared."

From Doody's Review

The Federal government, together with more than 50 advocacy groups, has spent the past 40 years writing and refining the rules and guidelines in this manual.



This book presents the latest federal guidelines and protocols used by federal surveyors in certifying facilities for participation in Medicare and Medicaid funding. It is an essential resource for long-term care facilities to have on hand to be ready for a survey at any time. It provides information straight from CMS's Internet-Only Manual-in print and at your fingertips for easy access.



Divided into four accessible and user-friendly parts, this manual includes:


  • Federal requirements and interpretive guidelines
  • Rules for conducting the survey
  • Summary of the requirements for long-term care facilities and surveyors
  • CMS forms commonly used by surveyors




This newly updated and revised edition spans every aspect and service of a nursing home and represents the latest requirements to ensure that outstanding quality assurance and risk management programs are in place.



New to This Edition:



  • Section on how to use manual
  • Summarization of federal requirements
  • Updated definitions of Medicare and Medicaid
  • Compliance requirements with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • SNF/Hospice requirements when SNF serves hospice patients
  • SNF-based home health agencies
  • Life safety code requirements
  • Changes in SNF provider status
  • Surveyor qualifications standards
  • Management of complaints and incidents
  • New medical director guidelines

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Marcia K Flesner, PhD, RN, MHCA(University of Missouri-Columbia)
Description:The book lists the regulations, guidelines, procedures, and probes used by federal surveyors in certifying nursing homes for participation in Medicare and Medicaid programs.
Purpose:The claim is made that facilities which implement the federal guidelines will have outstanding quality assurance and risk management programs in place. Meeting the federal guidelines is a worthy objective and the book does provide the federal requirements with definitions, interpretive guidelines, and procedures that state surveyors use to evaluate homes during their licensing survey.
Audience:The book is written for employees of long term care facilities and state surveyors. Individuals not familiar with federal LTC standards may find the book difficult to understand because there is no explanation of the terminology used in the regulations.
Features:It lists all the federal requirements that are evaluated by state surveyors during the annual survey visit to nursing homes and for complaint visits. The exhibit section contains forms used by surveyors to gather data during the survey visit. Visually, the format makes the regulations easy to read. If nursing home staff used the book to prepare for a survey, they would be well prepared.
Assessment:Knowing the interpretive guidelines used by surveyors would help nursing home staff to prepare for the annual survey visit. By knowing the definitions in the book, the staff would be better able to defend their decision-making at the home to explain how their actions do comply with the regulations.
