Penalties and Home Health Surveys: What’s the Big Deal?


Home care agencies must have an increased urgency to ensure compliance with all regulatory surveys more than ever before. CMS’ recent final rule is in full effect, which entails alternative sanctions and the release of more specific and stringent survey processes, updated guidelines and enforcements. It is definitely a “new day” in the survey world. Do you know what these changes include, and can you say your agency is prepared for this scrutiny? The ability of CMS to impose up to $10,000/day in civil money penalties and other crippling sanctions, such as placing a temporary manager or suspension of payment, cannot be taken lightly by any agency, including those with deemed status through an accreditation organization. Join Cindy Neese, PPS Plus Software’s Director of Regulatory and Compliance Division, in a 3-part presentation. Cindy will provide a detailed review of these requirements, suggestions on how to prevent problem issues and what to do if you find yourself in an “unexpected” crisis situation.


Session I: Survey Deficiencies and Alternative Sanctions - What’s the Reality?
Thursday, October 9, 2014
11 am – 12:30 pm CST

Do you understand what alternative sanctions mean for your agency? Do you understand how these sanctions can be applied to your agency and why? Join Cindy Neese, PPS Plus Software’s Director of Regulatory & Compliance Division, as she breaks down the details of the implementation of alternative sanctions, including what deficiencies can result in alternative sanctions and how CMS will decide which sanction to impose on an agency. In this webinar, you’ll also learn how the accredited home health agencies with deemed status can be affected by these sanctions.

Session II: Pre, During, and Post Survey “Dos and Don’ts”
Thursday, October 16, 2014
11 am – 12:30 pm CST

Receive insight and suggestions on what you can do as an agency to lower your risk of survey compliance issues, understand the difference between standard and condition-level deficiencies and learn how the surveyors will review and decide what level deficiency you should be cited. In this presentation, you’ll also learn how to handle your survey and what actions you should take once your survey is complete.

Session III: Receiving Immediate Jeopardy Deficiencies - Easier Than You Think!
Wednesday, October 29, 2014
11 am – 12:30pm CST

Identify multiple risk situations that can cause a home health agency to receive immediate jeopardy deficiencies. Most agencies think it would never happen to them, but the reality is sometimes “bad things” happen to “good agencies.” In the world of surveys, it’s all about what you do before a situation occurs, how you handle it when the situation arises, and your actions afterward that truly make a difference.
