Why

The current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has put the extremely vulnerable population of residents and patients in Nursing Homes and Long Term Care facilities at an increased risk of infection.

MyFieldAudits has a long-time partnership with these facilities. As such, we have compiled an Infection Control Kit consisting of recommendations and infection control audits put forth by the CDC available at NO COST.

COVID-19 Focused Survey for Nursing Homes – Self Assessment

This survey tool is used to investigate compliance at F880 and determine whether the facility is implementing proper infection prevention and control practices to prevent the development and transmission of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases and infections. Entry and screening procedures as well as resident care guidance has varied over the progression of COVID-19 transmission in facilities. Facilities are expected to be in compliance with CMS requirements and surveyors will use guidance that is in effect at the time of the survey.

COVID-19 Focused Survey for Acute & Continuing Care – Self Assessment

This survey tool provides a focused review of the critical elements associated with the transmission of COVID-19, will help surveyors to prioritize survey activities while onsite, and identify those survey activities which can be accomplished offsite. These efficiencies will decrease the potential for transmission of COVID-19, as well as lessen disruptions to the facility and minimize exposure of the surveyor. Surveyors should be mindful to ensure their activities do not interfere with the active treatment or prevention of transmission of COVID-19. Entry and screening procedures as well as patient care guidance has varied over the progression of COVID-19 transmission in facilities. Facilities are expected to be in compliance with CMS guidance that is in effect at the time of the survey.
