If your hospital has received a Statement of Deficiencies (CMS Form 2567) with Notice of Immediate Jeopardy or Notice of Termination, it has been determined that your hospital has a condition-level deficiency. This means your hospital is not in substantial compliance with one or more of the CMS Conditions of Participation.
Condition-level deficiencies are more serious than element-level or standard-level deficiencies, as hospitals must be in compliance with all CoPs to continue participation in the Medicare program. It is critical that you know how to respond to a CMS termination letter.
