CMS COVID-19 Focus Surveys and Self-Assessments

CMS COVID-19 Focus Surveys and Self-Assessments

QSO-20-20: Prioritization of Surveys describes the new COVID-19 Focused Survey for Nursing Homes and includes a COVID-19 Self-Assessment, which nursing facilities should complete. VHCA-VCAL has learned that surveyors have asked for the assessment and expect that facilities have used this specific tool. Surveyors are also using this Focused Survey Entrance Checklist.

Other self-assessment tools for COVID-19 or infection control, including the CDC self-assessment tool will not be accepted. If you have not completed the CMS tool, we encourage you to do so now. If you completed another tool, we suggest that you transfer that information onto the CMS self-assessment tool.
