CMS Immediate Jeopardy

Respond & Recover from a CMS Survey

Respond & Recover

You need to be sure you are on the right course as you prepare for or rebound from a CMS Survey. The road can be winding, but a clear map can guide the way. The need is real. Did you know that for many hospitals over 50% of total revenue comes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and that for some organizations the amount is even greater? We know that compliance with CMS Conditions of Participation is the foundation for regulatory readiness and is critical to your participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

CMS Immediate Jeopardy

When an organization receives Immediate Jeopardy from CMS for concerns related to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and alleged patient safety concerns, several action steps must take place to rectify the situation and insure that the organization is able to maintain their Medicare Provider status. C&A collaborates with leaders to navigate hospitals through survey sanctions and prepare staff for survey success.

CMS Mock Survey

A CMS mock survey will help you get ahead of the curve. Every CMS mock survey is different, and C&A customizes every agenda, being sure that your areas of strength and vulnerabilities are carefully charted. This kind of assessment can provide you with the much-needed direction to help you galvanize your organization for survey.

CMS Post-Survey Support

Have you just experienced a CMS survey and now are faced with developing and implementing corrective actions? C&A, through our post-survey support, can guide you through the process, assist with the development of corrective actions, evaluate implementation and foster successful survey outcomes.
