On-Site Follow-Up Visits
Since the survey process focuses on the care of the individual, onsite follow-up visits are conducted to ensure that violations/deficiencies have been corrected.
Regulatory Services staff will follow up on all deficiencies cited on the CMS 2567 and all violations cited on Form 3724, including the State Standards for Participation (S tags).
The purpose of the follow-up visit is to confirm that the facility has regained compliance and has the ability to remain in compliance.
The facility can show evidence of monitoring by summarizing what steps it has taken to ensure the deficient practice remains corrected.
