Many of us know that there are certain F-tags that are difficult to avoid no matter how fantastic the nursing facility is. F309, F329, and F441 come to mind. However, there are citations that can be avoided with little effort. Several different tags deal with the posting of information and information provided to residents/families. For example, F156 (Notice of Rights, Rules, Services, Charges) has seemed to be an issue recently in some areas.
Taking a few minutes each week to ensure compliance with these areas can potentially save a lot of headaches once the surveyors enter the home.
