Seminar Description

Phase 2 of the CMS Requirements of Participation will go into effect this November 28, 2017. Included in Phase 2 will be the introduction of a new survey process, as well as new interpretive guidance for all surveyors. The guidance alone contains 695 pages of instruction for surveyors!! Much of the new requirements/guidance will place a higher degree of focus on the social services and activities departments - unlike anything we have seen in the past. In this training, Cat Selman will be covering the aspects of the new survey process, and will be addressing, in depth, surveyor guidance as it specifically relates to both social services and activities. If you want your staff fully prepared for upcoming surveys, this training is an absolute necessity. This training would be beneficial to the entire interdisciplinary team - not just the Social Worker and Activity Director. Register now to reserve your space!
