CMS is developing an online training for Regional Offices (RO), State Survey Agencies (SA), providers and other stakeholders on the new Nursing Home Regulations. The online training will be available to all parties starting November 18, 2016 and will include information about Phase 1 of the new Nursing Home Regulations. Around this same time, CMS will be releasing a revised version of Appendix PP which still has existing tags and guidance but incorporates the interpretive guidelines. The information in the online training will address the new language included in the New Nursing Home Regulations and how Phase 1 will be implemented in the State Operations Manual, F-Tags and survey process on November 28, 2016.
