On June 17th, 2011, CMS released Survey and Certification Memorandum that provides guidance to State Survey Agencies regarding the reporting of reasonable suspicions of crimes in long term care facilities. Civil Monetary Penalty and exclusion sanctions may apply to covered individuals (including contracted persons) who fail to comply with the reporting requirements, and to LTC facilities that retaliate against an employee who makes a lawful report, and LTC facilities are ineligible to receive Federal funds for any period they employ an excluded individual due to certain violations of the new law.

Indiana’s long term care organizations have come together to provide an in‐depth review of the new reporting mandate.

This 60 minute webinar will review legal requirements of ISDH implementation guidance/timelines, practical implementation tips for policy and procedure drafting, staff training, and a few practical examples of crimes and subsequent reports. CE credits are available for Health Facility Administrators.
