This year-long series will focus on the top deficiencies cited nationally with the new Long-Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP). Each session will concentrate on top-cited F-Tags with a review of the regulation and an analysis of the associated Interpretive Guidance. Survey procedures, such as associated Critical Element Pathways and/or Surveyor Probes used to guide the investigative process will be discussed. Actual citation examples will be shared and examined. Tools to assist the facility interdisciplinary team in monitoring compliance and incorporating performance improvement activities into the facility QAPI processes will be a focal point.

Projected Learning Outcomes/Course Objectives:

  • Identify the regulatory requirements related to the monthly F-Tag topic
  • Identify survey procedures that describe how the F-Tag topic is reviewed for compliance
  • during the annual survey process
  • Identify examples of how the F-Tag is commonly cited in the new LTCSP
  • Identify tools for the leadership team to use for monitoring compliance with the F-Tag topic
  • Explain strategies for incorporating survey preparedness into facility QAPI processes
