Preparation is key to better surveys, expert says

Preparation can help make annual inspection surveys go more smoothly, according to a provider who spoke yesterday afternoon during a McKnight's Super Tuesday webinar.

“Know what your issues are before surveyors find them,” said Kimberly Corrigan, executive director/administrator at Walton Manor Healthcare Center in Walton Hills, OH. Operators can also help foster positive relationships with inspectors by soliciting advice and support.

The webinar addressed commonly-cited deficiencies, and revealed an editors' list of top survey-related issues. Findings from an ongoing McKnight's survey on inspection-related concerns were also made public during the one-hour event. Not surprisingly, most respondents indicated that survey issues consume a large chunk of their workday.
