We are preparing for survey and we are open. In my understanding the patients are supposed to have copy of their plan of treatment? Is this correct? If so, does it has to be written or oral will do with documentation that the poc was discussed with the patient/cg and in agreement? Our agency is at Illinois. How about updates with medication profile? Any input or link is appreciated. Thank you!


  • You are doing a great job for patients . this survey may improve your facility and work.

  • At all times, not just during surveys, the consent form with disciplines frequencies and no charge to the patient form is completely filled out and signed by the patient. The medication profile (updated) should be in the home for the surveyor to check.
    However, we as agencies tend to pay more attention to these details when a survey is approaching. Have your field staff start prepping your patients that a survey is approaching as well.

  • edited May 2018 would like to know the purpose of this survey,
