Free assisted living regulatory compliance audit tools

Assisted living surveys are averaging almost 17 licensing orders per survey, indicating we have a lot of work to do in understanding the new regulations and implementing systems that align with the statutes and rules.

We are here to help! Last week, almost 300 providers attended our Assisted Living Summit, including participating in education covering many areas of regulatory compliance. And now, Care Providers of Minnesota is excited to announce FREE (members only) regulatory compliance self-audit tools. These audit tools will permit you to do a self-mock survey covering many commonly cited survey areas.

Care Providers of Minnesota members may download all the audit tools at once, or pick and choose them one at time for downloading. Where to start? I would suggest you consider starting with these three:
  • Facility tour and observations
  • Kitchen tour and observations
  • Fire and evacuation training and drills

You can then move on to the other 13 audit tools.

We have also posted the most popular MDH self-audit tools on our website—to help you better understand what surveyors/evaluators will be looking for during a survey.

Expect more self-audit tools to be released in the future as we continue to analyze assisted living survey results.
