F-Tag Review Series

Comprehensive Review of Regulations & Interpretive Guidance for Top F-Tags

A series of 12 webinars focusing on top-cited F-Tags in the new survey process

During this year long series, we will focus on the top deficiencies cited nationally with the new Long

Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP). Each session will concentrate on top-cited F-Tags with a review of the

regulation and an analysis of the associated Interpretive Guidance. Survey procedures, such as associated

Critical Element Pathways and/or Surveyor Probes used to guide the investigative process will be discussed.

Actual citation examples will be shared and examined. Tools to assist the facility interdisciplinary team

in monitoring compliance and incorporating performance improvement activities into the facility QAPI

processes will be a focal point.
