SimiTree helps clients withstand survey scrutiny and improve quality.
Home health and hospice surveyors are focusing on infection control measures under a lingering pandemic, taking a closer look at bag technique, hand hygiene, and equipment maintenance. While COVID-19 Pandemic Planning and Response, Infection Control, and Adverse Events top every surveyor’s list, OSHA has added its own new requirements for increased infection control efforts, creating an Emergency Temporary Standard requiring a full hazard assessment and work plan.
And CMS is ramping up its scrutiny on hospice organizations, with new regulations delivering operational and financial sanctions for agencies with poor survey results.
It’s more important than ever for home health and hospice organizations to incorporate survey-ready practices, processes, and procedures into their daily operations to withstand survey scrutiny and deliver services aligned with best practices and quality care.
SimiTree is uniquely positioned to help clients address the issues surveyors will focus on during your organization’s next survey. SimiTree experts think like surveyors because they are surveyors or have previously served in a surveyor role.
