When writing a Plan of Correction for a health inspection survey, Skilled Nursing Facilities need to become fluent in critical thinking, process improvement and data-driven performance measures.
The Auditing and Monitoring Components are an essential ingredient for acceptance of the POC.
The Top 8 Things to know about QAPI and Plan of Corrections submissions:
- If the surveyors identify that the Auditing and Monitoring Component of the POC is not consistent, not realistic or does not reflect an inherent checks and balance, the POC will not be accepted by the state.
- Surveyor follow-up of the audits will hone in on seeing that the audits are completed consistently and the findings of the audits are formally reported at the QAPI committee meeting. The results need to be rolled up into a user-friendly report for the Administrator and DON to oversee.
- The Auditing and Monitoring Component of the POC requires simplification for completion and reporting.
