This two-part series will prepare participants for surveys and to maintain survey readiness at all times using simple, but effective, strategies and tips – all the while complying with the regulations. Part 2 will focus on mock surveys, including the details, documents, and actionable areas. As a past surveyor and consultant, Sharon Litwin has performed hundreds of mock surveys. Her expert insight will show you the nooks and crannies to look in and fix!


  • Perform mock surveys in-agency with your own team
  • Format and perform the mock survey
  • Know what to look for when performing mock surveys
  • Analyze and trend deficient areas found during mock surveys
  • Write the report and action plan

WEBINAR DETAILS: Part 2 of the series will explain how to perform a mock survey (self-assessment) of your agency just like a surveyor would. Each area will be detailed, including the entrance interview, home visit and clinical record selection, office walk-through, and the myriad documents. You’ll learn how to survey the EP program and QAPI, including how to tie information from the QAPI program to what is found on home visits and in records. Discover what to look for in staff education, competency, and personnel files, how to interview staff and managers, and the specifics on how to include a home visit in a survey. This program will address how to review clinical records with particular attention to common deficiencies.

By the end of the webinar, you’ll know how to pull all the information together to identify trends and noncompliant areas. By making an actionable report, staff can be educated about noncompliant areas and make the changes necessary to maintain continued survey readiness.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND? This informative session will benefit administrators, directors of patient services, clinical managers, QAPI coordinators, selected field staff, and office personnel.
