Focused Infection Control Toolkit

Angie Szumlinski Announcements, News

On Friday, March 13, 2020, the President declared a national emergency which triggered the Secretary’s ability to authorize waivers or modifications of certain requirements pursuant to section 1135 of the Social Security Act (the Act). Under section 1135(b)(5) of the Act, CMS is prioritizing surveys, including infection control surveys for nursing homes.

This toolkit includes the survey preparation checklist, entrance conference guide and several policies related to containing the spread of COVID-19 to assist you in preparing for a focused survey.

The toolkit is also available on the Resource & Education Center website.
