HHS solicits input on nursing home compliance manual revisions

US DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR
    GENERAL, _FEDERAL REGISTER_ NOTICE: ""Solicitation of Information and
    Recommendations for Revising the Compliance Program Guidance for
    Nursing Facilities," (_FR_, Vol. 73, No. 16, .pdf format, p. 4248-4249,
    via HHS OIG.)

This Federal Register notice seeks the input and recommendations of interested parties as OIG revises the compliance program guidance (CPG) for nursing facilities, especially those serving Medicare, Medicaid, and other Federal health care program beneficiaries. The nursing home industry has experienced a number of changes since OIG first published a CPG in this area (65 FR 14289; March 16,
2000). Additionally, the subsequent years of enforcement and compliance activity in the nursing home industry has allowed OIG to address more fully the various risk areas in nursing home compliance. In evaluating the contents of the nursing facility CPG, OIG is soliciting comments, recommendations,
and other suggestions from concerned parties and organizations on how best to revise the nursing facility CPG to address relevant compliance issues. Specifically, OIG seeks comments addressing any changes to existing risk areas and introducing any new risk areas.

DEADLINE Feb. 25, 2008
