CMS June 29, 2022

Overview of New and Updated Guidance

To further support the implementation of the Long-Term Care (LTC) Facilities Requirements for Participation, which were published in 2016, CMS is issuing surveyor guidance which clarifies specific regulatory requirements and provides information on how compliance will be assessed. In addition, CMS is revising its guidance to State agencies, to strengthen the management of complaints and facility reported incidents.

Today’s updates to guidance are just one piece of CMS’s ongoing effort to implement  President Joe Biden’s vision to protect seniors by improving the safety and quality of our nation’s nursing homes, as outlined in a fact sheet released prior to his first State of the Union Address in March 2022.
