Q: My facility would like to conduct a mock survey to prepare us for the Quality Indicator Survey (QIS). How should we begin to do this?

A: The first step in the QIS mock survey process is to build your mock survey team and select a team coordinator. Include key representatives from clinical and nonclinical areas who are detail-oriented and have clinical expertise and knowledge of the federal regulations. Specialty mock surveyors and maintenance/operations representatives need not be present during the entire survey process. However, they should discuss their findings with the survey team prior to exiting and be available by phone during the entire survey process.
