not a state facility

  1. I work in a county home that does not take state funds. Therefore we don't go by the same rules and regulations of medicare. So I was wondering if there were any laws/regulations regarding these types of facilites? The health dept. did come once and do a "survey" however they weren't real specific on requirement's for staffing etc.
    So are there any other nurses out there who can offer advice or suggestions?

    Hi,
    I work in LTC that does not take any federal money, but in the state of WI I am surveyed by the state team a minimum of every 2 years. They survey us about the same way that my sister unit that takes Medicare dollars is. Your state should be able to give you the information you need. Good Luck NA
