Survey preparation: How self-audit practices come from QAPI

PPS Alert for Long-Term Care, September 8, 2017

To help prepare for survey readiness, it is crucial that you regularly audit your facility practices. Many audits can be scheduled routinely, but in all cases, these audits should be performed no later than when the survey window begins. These self-audits help create the survey readiness mode for staff, as auditing creates potential opportunities for improvement through the Quality Assurance and Process Improvement (QAPI) program (determining root causes with Plan of Correction implementation). In fact, the primary source of identification of audits required often comes out of the QA/QAPI program.
