Life Safety POC Requirements Reminder

Recently our partners at the Maine Fire Marshals' office reached out to  remind our ICF/Nursing Home members of the CMS requirements when responding to Plans of Corrections for K-tags. The elements required within a Plan of Correction include:
  1. How the corrective action will be accomplished for identified affected individuals;
  2. How will other individuals with the potential to be affected or in similar situations be identified and protected;
  3. What systemic changes will ensure that the deficient practice will not recur;
  4. How the facility will monitor its corrective actions/performance;
  5. When will corrective action be accomplished.
When writing your plan of correction please keep these elements in mind. As always, feel free to connect with us at MHCA if you have questions regarding these requirements.
