All Things Conditions of Participation… Mock Surveys and QAPI Consulatation
Be Prepared Before Auditors Come Knocking at Your Door! With a Fazzi mock survey, your agency will be evaluated for possible vulnerabilities and equipped with a strategy to help ensure compliance with the CoPs. At the conclusion of the mock survey, your agency will be provided with findings that identify standards not in compliance or perhaps don’t reflect known industry best practice. Fazzi’s experts will partner with you to make this experience educational and the basis for continuous improvement.
Specific results from Fazzi’s Mock Survey:
- Review of Policies and Procedures to ensure current criteria
- Review personnel records for key criteria
- Field Visits with multiple disciplines to observe performance against agency policies, procedures and standards.
- Review QAPI Program and activities
- Clinical Record Review to ensure current compliance with standards related to Patient Rights and Care Planning
- Interviews with staff and leaders to determine compliance and understanding of key CoPs
- Exit Conference/Report: At the conclusion of the on-site assessment, an exit conference will be conducted to present our findings. Information for corrective actions will be provided. We will provide a report and our findings along with the standards likely to be cited as not in compliance.
- Assisted Implementation: Fazzi will be available to provide assistance to your agency in preparation for the follow-up survey should management find it would be beneficial to them.
