CMS Releases Several Updates to Surveyors

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) releases several updates to surveyors; changes will impact providers’ compliance this fall (10/24/22). Revisions from the CMS Memo (QSO-22-19-NH) include:

  • Modifications to guidance surveyors use to identify noncompliance in key areas.
  • Revisions to Complaint and Facility Reported Incidents (FRIs) in Chapter 5 of the State Operations Manual, intended to strengthen oversight of complaints and FRIs.
  • Clarifications to the Psychosocial Outcome Severity Guide to determine scope and severity of deficiencies.
