Tips for state survey?

  1. I am going on my second year in LTC - although I experienced a survery last year, I am still nervous for our upcoming one. Any tips from experienced nurses?

    A few questions I have -

    When giving eye drops, what do you do with the cap? Also, how do you recap it regarding which hand is clean VS dirty -

    Do we need to wear gloves with nasal sprays/inhalers?

    I am going to try and put together a "Tip List" for use in my facility and for later posting on here.
