How to handle a survey like a pro

Wednesday, May 6th 2020 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am CST

Too often surveyors intimidate the CS manager and staff when an onsite survey is conducted. An experienced CMS surveyor and accreditor with more than 24 years of experience will present a look into regulatory compliance and standards and how they are applied during a survey. Techniques to be used for dealing with a surveyor while onsite will be discussed. Those who attend will understand what steps to take to prepare for a successful survey.

The expert speaker will:

  • Explain the differences between regulatory and accreditation surveys
  • Describe how to prepare for a successful survey
  • Discuss methods of dealing with the surveyor

    Participants will understand the differences between a regulation and a standard. Documentation requirements will be discussed so participants won't be surprised by a surveyor's request for information.
