Looking at compliance issues on a regular basis allows agencies to find problems and act on them in a timely manner. Imagine – the pressure of last minute survey preparation is no longer a worry.  Continuous Survey Readiness (CSR) means that the agency is ready for a survey or audit at any time.  Having that level of preparedness provides confidence in agency operations and documentation compliance.  CSR is also conducive to a safe environment and high quality patient care as staff understands expectations and regulatory compliance.  Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) emphasize continuous organizational-wide performance improvement Challenge your agency to achieve Continuous Survey Readiness. Don’t wait until survey to find out the agency “fell short” in areas and received deficiencies.
