"[The book] lists all the federal requirements that are evaluated by state surveyors during the annual survey visit to nursing homes and for complaint visits. The exhibit section contains forms used by surveyors to gather data during the survey visit. Visually, the format makes the regulations easy to read. If nursing home staff used the book to prepare for a survey, they would be well prepared."

From Doody's Review

The Federal government, together with more than 50 advocacy groups, has spent the past 40 years writing and refining the rules and guidelines in this manual.

This book presents the latest federal guidelines and protocols used by federal surveyors in certifying facilities for participation in Medicare and Medicaid funding. It is an essential resource for long-term care facilities to have on hand to be ready for a survey at any time. It provides information straight from CMS's Internet-Only Manual-in print and at your fingertips for easy access.

Divided into four accessible and user-friendly parts, this manual includes:

  • Federal requirements and interpretive guidelines
  • Rules for conducting the survey
  • Summary of the requirements for long-term care facilities and surveyors
