F-Tag Review Series: Comprehensive Review of Regulations & Interpretive Guidance for Top F-Tags


A series of 12 webinars focusing on top-cited F-Tags in the new survey process


During this year long series, we will focus on the top deficiencies cited nationally with the new Long Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP). Each session will concentrate on top-cited F-Tags with a review of the regulation and an analysis of the associated Interpretive Guidance. Survey procedures, such as associated Critical Element Pathways and/or Surveyor Probes used to guide the investigative process will be discussed. Actual citation examples will be shared and examined. Tools to assist the facility interdisciplinary team in monitoring compliance and incorporating performance improvement activities into the facility QAPI processes will be a focal point.
