DOH Distribution of New Infection Inspection and Audit Checklist

DOH Distribution of New Infection Inspection and Audit Checklist

Published January 2, 2024

In early January 2024, NYSDOH will begin notice distribution to nursing homes with submission requests for the new Infection Inspection and Audit Checklist. These forms were previewed in a DAL and in a December webinar.

These notices will be emailed in phases to a group of facilities at the beginning of each month until all nursing homes have received notice. The facility administrator, and possibly one other facility leader, will receive this notice and be given 30 days to respond to the survey. Special Focus Facilities; Special Focus Facility Candidates; and facilities that have performed poorly on survey, staffing, or quality measures will be prioritized for submission earlier in the year.

Facilities that successfully complete the survey will receive a letter of compliance. If the DOH staff identify incomplete or incorrect elements, facilities will be asked to resubmit corrections within a specified period of time.

We hope this advance notice allows you more time to prepare your survey for submission. For your convenience, we are sharing these links to the recorded webinar and the survey tool. We recommend you prepare in advance so you are not caught short of time. If the Coretactics team can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
