DOH Releases 2013 Quality Pool Results

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

 

The DOH sent the attached notice to all SNFs yesterday on the 2013 Quality Pool results. NYSHFA has discussed specific SNF concerns with both the Quality Pool leadership staff and the DOH SNF Surveillance leadership. Most of these concerns have related to the Attorney General’s list that has made some higher performing facilities ineligible or some issues related to smaller facilities and their scoring percentages. NYSHFA inquired about an appeals process, but have learned that there is none at this time. However, any concerns should be directed to the Quality Pool email address: NHQP@health.state.ny.us or in a letter to them or one directed through the association. The DOH has delayed the release of this information to the media at this time, but has a plan to do so in the near future.
