About this title


What could be better than knowing what's wrong BEFORE a survey?

The QIS Mock Survey Guide helps you develop a survey team, conduct a mock survey, and ultimately test your facility's survey-readiness.

The best way to be prepared for a Quality Indicator Survey (QIS) is to know what you should expect. The only true way to gain that knowledge is to conduct mock surveys using the actual materials used by surveyors in the field.

The HCPro resource The QIS Mock Survey Guide is a book and CD-ROM that provides you with a step-by-step outline of what happens during a survey under the revised process. It simplifies the differences between the traditional survey and the QIS and provides educational tools to complete the survey process.

This solution-based guide:

- Includes an overview of the QIS and how to transition into the QIS from the traditional survey process
- Offers instructions on how to perform both Stage I and Stage II of the QIS at your organization
- Provides a detailed outline of everything you need to do to prepare before the arrival of surveyors
- Includes case studies that look at five separate instances where facilities were found deficient under F-tags 329, 309, 314, 323, and 505
- Outlines the best way to develop a survey team, conduct a mock survey, and troubleshoot any potential problems
- Contains the actual forms and worksheets used by surveyors in the field today
