How familiar are you with the State Operations Manual (SOM)? If you don’t know the differences between regulation and guidance—or the ins and outs of Appendix P and Appendix PP—then you’re setting your skilled nursing facility up for failure. After all, the surveyors checking up on you have this knowledge in their back pockets. Time to turn the tables!
Get an insider’s analysis of what SNF surveyors are looking for and uncover all you need to know about the SOM in this information-packed audio conference presented by healthcare compliance expert Carmen Bowman. She’ll give you a strong foundation for SOM compliance by walking you through each detail of the federal requirements and how surveyors use them.
Don’t let the misguided opinions of other professionals and surveyors lead you astray—get the facts and concrete action points you need to ace your next survey and effectively address Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). After attending, you’ll be fluent in both the regulation and interpretive guidance—and inspired to “be your own surveyor” so that you can make proactive and compliant quality improvements at your nursing facility.
