TOPIC: SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATING THE REGULATORY LANDSCAPE: A FORMER SURVEYOR'S PERSPECTIVE

With so many consultants, attorneys and other interested parties offering advice on how to improve survey results, is there really room for another perspective? Perhaps. This presentation will focus on lessons learned during a 26 year career involved in the regulation and oversight of long term care facilities. Insights gained from thousands of case reviews and a similar number of discussions with surveyors, providers, CMS staff members, advocates and other stakeholders will be shared. Practical advice on how to successfully interact with surveyors, compensate for “sparse” documentation, determine which deficiencies should be disputed and approaches aimed at maintaining perspective during the survey process will be highlighted.

In 2013 Bill Vaughan joined Remedi SeniorCare after a 26 year career with Maryland’s state survey agency. Bill was a CMS certified health facility surveyor who evaluated the care delivered in Maryland’s nursing homes and assisted living facilities for 14 years. In 2001 he became Chief Nurse of Maryland’s Office of Health Care Quality and was responsible for the clinical oversight of the agency’s approximately 120 surveyors. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Maryland at Baltimore in 1982, Bill gained clinical experience at The Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland Hospitals. He has taught pharmacy and nursing students at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, the University of Maryland School of Nursing and Towson University. Bill speaks nationally on the regulation of healthcare facilities and was on CMS expert panels which developed guidance to surveyors on pain management and end of life care. He is currently a member of the Institute for Safe Medication Practices’ Clinical Advisory Board for their LTC newsletter.
