Medicare “Condition-Level Deficiencies” and Preliminary Denial of Accreditation

Recorded Live: June 6th, 2019

Roughly half of the hospitals undergoing a Joint Commission survey this year will find themselves with one or more Medicare “Condition-Level Deficiencies” or CLDs. A growing number will also face Preliminary Denial of Accreditation.

Greeley has over 30 years of expertise in helping hospitals mitigate or overcome their regulatory compliance challenges, and you can join Greeley accreditation experts to learn how to navigate and avoid putting your organization at risk from this growing threat. This new complimentary Insights webinar, “Navigating a Joint Commission Survey Disaster”, will walk you through the all-too-frequent, nerve-racking challenges to your hospital’s Medicare certification and Joint Commission accreditation.

You will learn:

  • how to avoid the issues that commonly lead to CLD
  • how and when to clarify findings related to CLDs (and, yes, the Joint Commission still accepts 10-day clarifications)
  • how to prepare for the 45-day Medicare Deficiency (or “MED DEF”) survey that follows a CLD
  • what happens if you don’t pass your 45-day MED DEF survey
  • how CLDs relate to Preliminary Denial of Accreditation.

After attending this live event, you will be armed with the knowledge necessary to:

  • set realistic expectations for your hospital’s executive leaders based on common industry-wide vulnerabilities
  • minimize the likelihood that CLDs will be identified during your survey
  • respond quickly and effectively should a CLD be found
  • prepare for and manage the Joint Commission’s MED DEF and Preliminary Denial of Accreditation re-surveys

Join us live on Thursday, June 6th, 2019 from 2 PM ET to 3 PM ET, so you can be prepared should you receive a condition-level deficiency in your next Joint Commission survey.  Or if you are amid a survey disaster, you can navigate the process in support of a successful outcome.
