Plante Moran Clinical Consulting Principal Jane Belt will be presenting "F-Tag 309 End-of-Life." CMS has been busy updating and clarifying the Interpretive Guidelines for nursing home surveyors. The revisions have included updates to F309 – Quality of Care for End of Life. There are no actual regulatory language changes, but based on the Memo: Ref: S&C 12-48-NH facilities need to have a clear understanding of what the surveyors will be reviewing to determine F 309 compliance. So whether it is the development of policies and procedures, a protocol for collaboration with hospice, managing resident choices, evidence of appropriate documentation (and what is needed), we will make certain that you have all your pieces of the Action Plan in place.
