AHCA/NCAL 2020 Session: Enhanced Enforcement Penalties for Infection Control Deficiencies

On June 1, 2020, CMS released QSO 20-31-NH memo detailing the enhanced enforcement penalties that facilities now face for deficiency citations related to infection control violations. CMS will impose penalties for any deficiency associated with infection control requirements at a scope and severity level of D or above.

The AHCA/NCAL Virtual Convention & Expo was packed full of insightful educational content. We wanted to make our session&emdash;Enhanced Enforcement Penalties for Infection Control Deficiencies&emdash; available to everyone.

Watch at your convenience as Hugh Heaton, Subject Matter Expert, discusses the factors that drive the penalty assessment, criteria used, penalties assessed and how the NHSN COVID-19 Weekly Reporting Data is used.
