OBRA Mock Survey for Long Term Care
Prepare for surveys with the Polaris Group OBRA Mock Survey. Changes in survey protocols and enforcement rules have left long term care facilities like yours at increased risk of Immediate Jeopardy and G citations, for example and civil money penalties, as well. Facilities that receive G citations on back-to-back surveys no longer have the opportunity to make corrections first: sanctions are imposed immediately. Managing your day to day operations in an environment of constant change is challenging enough. Preventing penalties before they occur is another matter altogether.

To help you identify potential compliance issues and address them now, Polaris Group can perform an OBRA Mock Survey at your facility. We'll send a team of consultants who can visit your site, applying the same protocols, tasks, and quality indicators used by surveyors. Afterward, we'll send you detailed recommendations for immediate correction, along with time-proven tools, systems, and procedures designed to help your organization stay on top of compliance issues in the long run.
The OBRA Mock Survey Process includes:
  • Off-site preparation
    • We select the QM/QIs and charts most likely to be audited by your survey team
  • Extensive report with findings, potential F-tag scope/severity and detailed recommendations
  • On-site preparation
    • Entrance and Initial Tour
    • Resident Sample Selection
    • Information Gathering: Observations of facility, kitchen/food service, resident review, quality of life assessment, med pass, quality assessment and assurance review, abuse prohibition review, infection control
    • Information Analysis
    • Exit Interview
Polaris Group will develop a comprehensive survey report that:
  • Provides resources, example forms with solid ideas for compliance
  • Identifies your high-risk areas
  • Assigns scope and severity risk for citations to all F-tags
  • Provides detailed solutions and proven programs for corrections
  • Suggests corrections to achieve immediate compliance on target charts
