1. Survey Process and Enforcement

This chapter will review the survey process, surveyor probes and determination of scope and severity. Avoiding citations is often tied to adequate and appropriate documentation so the session will cover basic components of good clinical documentation. This section will also provide tips on how nursing leaders can provide an environment that will ease the stress of the survey process on staff.

2. Other Regulatory Agencies

Review Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA), labor laws, state regulations related to nursing homes, hospital readmission initiatives, and Medicare regulations. Compliance of practices related to these agencies is important to the overall survival of the facility. Basic understanding and what clinical practice these rules affect is important to overall regulatory compliance.
