AHCA/NCAL Resources: Phase 2 of the Long Term Care Survey: every-thing you need to ensure a smooth survey

Did you know that administrators who are intimately aware of the SNF regulatory requirements and make sure that every member of their staff understands their role in en-suring compliance are more likely to run five-star facilities? Every area of SNF operations has its own regulatory re-quirements. AHCA puts all of this information at your fin-gertips and makes it easy for you to avoid deficiencies as you prepare for your next survey.
