Late last week, CMS posted updates to 2 components of the survey process:
#1 is a regulatory reference correction found in both the Word and PDF versions of CMS-20054. These are found in the LTC Survey Pathways .zip file.
#2 is also a regulatory reference correction found in the COVID-19 Focused Survey Protocol document within the COVID-19 FIC Survey Protocol .zip file.
CMS actually corrected the name of the COVID-19 Focused Survey folder to COVID-19 FIC Survey folder with this December update even though it was identified in the November 21, 2020 update.
Subscribers to the Briggs LTC Survey Guide – #1766 manualor the Briggs LTC Survey Guide – #1766 digital manual will receive this updates this week.
