Top 10 Survey Deficiencies

CMS Compliance Group completed an analysis of the top 10 areas being cited using CMS data for the past 6 months of available data and discussed it with a national audience on a McKnight’s Long Term Care Super Tuesday webinar. Did you miss the event?

Well, if you didn’t get a chance to register or attend, you can review the list here and plan accordingly so your facility is always survey-ready and providing excellent quality of care.
