CMS has released the final “mega” nursing home survey and certification rule. This will be the biggest change in nursing home regulations since OBRA 87. The 712-page rule can be seen here. The rule has a three-stage phase-in beginning 11-28-16, phase two 11-28-17 and phase three 11-28-18.
HOPE’s Director of Regulatory Affairs, Becky Bartle, spent hours dissecting the new requirements and in partnership with LeadingAge Indiana prepared a three-part webinar training series exclusively for members of HOPE and LeadingAge Indiana. If you missed this important education you can still view the training webinar. For more information, please contact: Terry Miller at 812-470-8256 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
