Membership of the Survey/Regulatory Committee

The first meeting of the newly formed Survey/Regulatory Committee will be held February 26 from 11 a.m. to noon via teleconference. As Chair of the Committee, I am looking for members who are interested in serving on this important committee. If you are interested in being included on the distribution list for this committee, please send an email with the subject ling “Survey/Regulatory Committee” to, and we will include you on the distribution of committee materials.

The Committee is designed to review quarterly DQA citation statistics for ways in which facilities can advance and improve their efforts toward survey compliance. As a means of enabling these efforts, the committee will make educational session recommendations for the Spring Conference, Fall Convention, as well as topical areas that should be covered in regional and one-day workshops. The committee will also make recommendations for elements to be included in survey preparation tool development for facilities. The Survey/Regulatory Committee will be the primary vehicle through which the association develops recommendations on strategic reform planning of the SNF survey system to CMS and state survey agency officials.

The schedule for the 2019 Committee times has been set:

  • 11 a.m., February 26 – Teleconference
  • 10 a.m., April 30 – Teleconference
  • 10 a.m. August 27 – Teleconference
  • 10 a.m. December 3 – In person
