CMS Operations Manual
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released its operations manual updates, including new F-tags for facility closures last week. The updates include amendments to Appendix PP of the SOM, with revisions to tags F203 and F204. Additional tags, F523 and F524, were also added.
Looks like CMS and nursing home inspectors have more than a little egg on their face, thanks to a recent circuit court ruling in favor of a wrongly accused operator.
