The Good NewsThe survey process has changed, but the F-Tags and Interpretive Guidelines are the same.

CD Network

stage i process
STAGE I PROCESS
  • Preliminary investigation of residents
    • Randomly selected by QIS Data Collection Tool (DCT)
    • Based on a range of care areas covered by the federal regulations
    • Resident assessments are based on observations, interviews, review of the clinical records and an analysis of MDS data.

CD Network

stage i process continued
STAGE I PROCESS - continued
  • Constructs 160 resident outcome and process indicators called Quality of Care Indicators (QCIs)
  • The QCIs are then compared to national norms
  • QCIs that score above the statistical threshold are computer-selected for a detailed in-depth investigation in stage II.
  • Includes Tasks 1-6

CD Network

stage ii process
STAGE II PROCESS
  • In-depth investigation of residents with care areas identified by the computer in Stage I that exceeded thresholds (national norms)
  • Triggered care areas and residents are systemically investigated using Critical Element Pathways to determine regulatory compliance
  • Includes Tasks 6-9

CD Network

stage i

STAGE I

CD Network

task 1 off site survey preparation
TASK 1: OFF-SITE SURVEY PREPARATION

task 4 sample selection
TASK 4: SAMPLE SELECTION
  • Quality Indicator Survey Data Collection Tool (QIS DCT) provides a systematic automated resident sampling process.
  • QIS DCT generates 3 Stage I samples from the resident pool
    • 1) MDS sample
    • 2)Admission sample
    • 3)Census sample (subset of resident pool)
  • Surveyors may generate a non-random, surveyor-initiated sample (subset of resident pool).
  • Once samples are generated, data is downloaded to surveyor’s individual PCs

CD Network

task 4 mds sample
TASK 4: MDS SAMPLE
  • Drawn from resident pool generated off-site.

personal experiences with qis
Personal Experiences with QIS:

Per Liz*, an RD practicing in North Carolina:

  • My experience with QIS is very positive.
  • Surveyors are much more focused, less intrusive into your day.  I have had 4 of these surveys in 4 different facilities.
  • Each time they have come into the kitchen briefly on day one and not again until day 3 of 4 days, and then only briefly again.

personal experiences with qis cont
Personal Experiences with QIS: (cont)
  • My experience has been that that if they don't have problems on the initial walk-through or meal observations and there are no complaints from the patients or families, they consider dietary to be functioning well and don't spend hours looking for moisture in a dish or waiting for a cook to get flustered and make an error on when plating a meal. 
  • It seems that unless they have reason to think there are issues in dietary, they are very hands off. 
  • My administrators and the facility staff say they like QIS...staff agree that the surveyors are better focused and stick to their "script" without deviations or getting off track.

Personal Experiences with QIS:

Another experience shared by an RD:

  • I have had one QIS thus far, but it has been positive overall.
  • For the kitchen inspection, they came in on day 1 and day 4. A few small problems were noted and test tray was a problem. 
  • Care planning was a big focus.
