The NEW Nursing Home Survey Process
Preparing Your Team for Success! 
Date Changed to OCTOBER 17, 2017

Moore-Norman Technology Center, OKC
6 hours of CEU credit available

Important Notice Regarding the August 30 New Nursing Home Survey Process Training – DATE CHANGED TO OCTOBER 17.

In late spring, CMS announced that surveyors across the country would be receiving education on the new process by October, 2017. Initially the new implementation date for Oklahoma was October 6, when surveyors were to have been trained on the new survey process.  CMS has announced that the date of implementation will be November 28, 2017. They also reported that the new forms and processes would be published the first week in August. The new forms and processes are not yet available to providers for training.  In order to provide you with the most accurate and up to date information on how the new process will work, we have decided to move the date of the training from August 30, 2017 to October 17, 2017.  This will ensure that the new forms and processes are included in this very important training program. LeadingAge OK is committed to providing the most up-to-date and comprehensive information so all providers will be prepared for the transition to the new survey process. We feel that this additional time is essential given the change by CMS.

All registrations for the seminar will be transferred to Tuesday, October 17. The seminar times and location will remain the same.

If you need to cancel, there is no cancellation fee if you cancel by August 30.  However, this seminar is nearly sold out and should you decide to attend, the late fee would apply for any new registrations.

We regret the inconvenience of this change, however, it was essential in order to provide the comprehensive training providers need.

___________________

It is critical that every member of your interdisciplinary team understand the revised survey program in order to transition your organization for a successful survey.
