Decrease your exposure with Accident Prevention and Resident Supervision: Preparing your SNF for F-Tag #323.
You need to provide adequate supervision and assistance to prevent accidents.
CMS has combined F-tag #323 and #324 into one all-encompassing tag, F-tag #323, accident prevention. Under the new tag, resident environments must remain as free of accident hazards as possible. Areas such as resident supervision, hazard identification, resident risk, falls, unsafe wandering/elopement, environmental assessment of hazards, and resident-to-resident altercations are in the survey spotlight under the new changes. You can expect CMS surveyors to possibly cite you in any of these areas under F-tag #323. Master F-tag #323 with:
CMS’ word-for-word guidance on F-tag #323
Expert commentary to help you pinpoint exactly what surveyors will be examining during their visits
Sample care plans and policies to reduce risk and increase resident safety in the areas of falls, restraints, elopement, smoking, and much more
Handy risk assessments for all sorts of accident and physical plant hazards
Simply stated interpretations of CMS guidelines that you can understand and use right away
Citations related to accidents, or any other deficiency, mean bottom line losses—and no SNF can afford to lose money, especially if the incident could have been avoided. With Accident Prevention and Resident Supervision, you can rest easy that you have the most up-to-date advice on complying with this confusing and possibly costly regulation.
