Changes in survey protocols and enforcement rules have left long-term care facilities at increased risk of substandard care citations. We will help to ensure your survey is a success by identifying risk areas and making recommendations to achieve compliance and avoid civil money penalties. A team of Polaris Consultants will visit your site and conduct a mock survey, applying the same protocols, tasks, and quality indicators used by surveyors. We will also include an Exit Interview and Extensive Report with potential F-tag findings and detailed recommendations to assist in implementation.
As the regulations for Assisted Living Facilities become more stringent and the survey process more adversarial, Polaris Group can provide you confidence in your survey preparation. Polaris Group ALF Mock Surveys will allow you to know your risk areas and achieve compliance before your surveyors arrive. Your ALF Mock Survey will include:
A mock survey is an essential component of preparing for an actual state survey, but it is not the only one. It is highly recommended that long-term care administrators take a close look at areas including staff competencies, grievance policies, regularity of resident council meetings, quality assurance programs, and staff training programs. These are all areas surveyors pay close attention to and can have a significant bearing on the outcome of your survey.
Polaris Group has the expertise and proven approach needed to assist with survey preparation for nursing homes and long-term care communities. Our strategy differs from other consulting firms because we bring more than 30 years of experience in the industry, as well as comprehensive reports detailing the results of your mock survey so you can make any adjustments prior to the real thing.
