Are there any reports I can obtain which provide some way of knowing if the Nursing facility meets certain standards?
Your state health department produces a yearly report on the performance of each nursing home that is certified for Medicare or Medicaid. You should review the latest report. It is required to be posted at the facility or you can obtain a copy through your health department. You should talk to the nursing home administrator about the results of the survey. The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) also produces an annual report on nursing home information that allows consumers to compare performances of different nursing homes on a variety of measures.
- When preparing the nursing facility or home office cost reports, do I make Medicaid required adjustments to the Medicare cost report?
- What is the process I should follow to obtain a Child Care Facility Approval (CCFA) letter?
- Where can I obtain a copy of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Patient Care Standards manual?
