  1. 0 Quick question: I had heard that once a facility has had a QIS survey (I'm in Upstate NY) that the next survey must be a QIS I have not found this written in anything and wanted to know if anyone else had some insight into this. It's patchy where I am. Some facilities getting traditional survey, some getting QIS. Any help is appreciated.

    In MN we were one of the first facilities to get the QIS in the state. Once we had it, we never had a traditional again. But, that doesn't answer your question, not sure if it is set in stone.

    Thanks! We had a zero deficiency (for nursing dept) QIS last year and just entered our window again. Here's to hoping for the same this year! This will be the first survey that I have been involved with at this facility. I started four months ago as the manager of a 40 bed rehab/LTC floor. It's been a little chaotic with the adjustment, so I suppose I'm just being gun shy.

    Once you go QIS, you won't go back.

    That's what I had hoped for. The survey team is at a neighboring facility getting the old style survey. I'm not going to get worked up about it. I have worked hard. It's been only four months and there is still much left that hasn't even caught up yet. I can only do my best.

    Well, you never know what to expect! We are having the traditional survey after going through a QIS last year. So much for consistency. This unpredictability is demoralizing and one of the reasons I think I want to leave long term care for good. I do not like the direction the industry is taking lately. At least in New York. I think I'd rather do bedside care back on med surg

    Thanks, we weren't so lucky this time. Two nursing and three other tags this go-round. Plan of correction done and implemented. Ny said they will go all QIS by 2014- I won't hold my breath
