For the second week in a row, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has postponed an eagerly awaited SNF Open Door Forum conference call that will focus on accommodations from the Jimmo case and other hot topics. It will now take place at 2 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Dec. 19, according to various reports. Regulators have said when the call takes place, they also will be making a "Medicare" announcement, and will address MDS training and the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes during the call.
