When the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) revised the guidance and survey protocol for activity requirements in 2006, it was the most significant change in activity guidance since OBRA was introduced in 1990. Not only is the activity department being surveyed more closely, but all facility staff are becoming more of a focus, regarding their role and responsibilities to the delivery of activity services. Add CMS initiatives on dementia care, and reduction of antipsychotic drug usage to this equation, and you will see that "activities" has become an important variable in the survey process. Will your activity & nursing departments be able to stand the scrutiny? Don't wait for the next survey and receive citations that could have been avoided. If you want to learn how the surveyors are being instructed to evaluate activities in nursing homes, presented by an educator who helped write the surveyor guidance, this is the webinar to attend!
