Nursing Homes: Opportunities Exist to Facilitate the Use of the Temporary Management Sanction
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 30 pages
The fed. gov┐t. sets quality requirements that nursing homes must meet to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and contracts with states to conduct routine inspections and complaint invest. Congress has authorized certain enforcement actions, known as sanctions. One sanction -- temporarily replacing a home's mgmt. -- has been used infrequently. Federal temporary management (FTM) may be used instead of termination in cases where nursing homes place residents at risk of death or serious injury. This report focused on: (1) CMS and states' experience with the use of FTM and its effectiveness in achieving compliance in the short and longer term; and (2) obstacles to the use of FTM and how such obstacles could be addressed. Charts and tables.
