DOH: Update on New Survey Process and Emergency Preparation Regulations

Nancy Leveille and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA staff followed up with DOH late last week related to training efforts on the new survey process as agreed upon in July. DOH noted they have made progress on the education plan for this fall. They are planning a full day in-person training, in four locations across the state, to cover the new life safety and emergency preparation regulations. Specific locations, dates and registration information will be forthcoming via the HCS soon. In addition, they are planning webinars on the new survey process. Their plan now is to hold those in the month of November as they are currently training the DOH survey staff. NYSHFA will keep members updated as soon as the final specific information becomes available.
