QSO 22-19 NH – Long Term Care Regulatory and Interpretive Guidance and Psychosocial Severity Guide Updates

QSO 22-19 NH – Long Term Care Regulatory and Interpretive Guidance and Psychosocial Severity Guide Updates

CMS has released QSO 22-19 NH. This is the updated Requirements of Participation Phase 3 guidance we have been waiting for since 2019, which was delayed due to COVID-19. Surveyors will begin using this guidance to identify noncompliance on October 24, 2022.

Also included in the updated guidance is information on infection preventionists, resident room size, and requirements related to binding arbitration agreements that was effective September 16, 2019. 

CMS has posted the training for the new guidance on the QSEP website – Long Term Care Regulatory and Interpretive Guidance and Psychosocial Severity Guide Updates – June 2022 (LTCRIGPSG)

LeadingAge WA will be reviewing the updated guidance and will give a more in-depth update
