Survey teams are back to their regular schedules for annual and complaint surveys – during the pandemic! 

Surveys can be one of the most stressful events in skilled nursing facilities. A survey during a pandemic can be even more stressful – but does it have to be? This webinar will discuss the effects of a pandemic on survey outcomes, top citations nationwide, the most recent mandates and recommendations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as best practices to achieve zero deficiency survey.
