DEEP DIVE INTO THE TOP FIVE: SNF
Each year we review the top cited regulations in our care settings. This high-level overview offers brief insight into what Residential Care Services licensors/surveyors are seeing and looking into.
Join us in a “deep dive” into each of the top five most cited regulations in ascending order for Skilled Nursing Facilities. Each session will address not only the F-tag and the WAC, but include the reasoning behind the citation in an effort to guide you in proactively addressing systems disruptions and improve your building’s compliance.
Join us for all five sessions (each one individually covering one of the top five citations in 2023), or select the webinars that focus in the areas you’re concerned about.
