OIG Evaluation Regarding Compliance with Reporting Allegations of Abuse: Now in NYS

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

As we reported on Monday in Member Mailing #352, the OIG is conducting an evaluation that will determine whether nursing facilities complied with Federal requirements related to reporting allegations of abuse and ensuring that covered individuals report reasonable suspicions of crimes and have active compliance plans. This project was scheduled to be conducted in CMS Region IV, however, members in both upstate and downstate facilities have started to report receipt of these OIG letters and survey as of yesterday.  Please review above member mailing and contact NYSHFA with any questions.
