- The New York State Department of Health began implementation of the Quality Indicator Survey during 2010 and the rollout continues in 2011. All skilled nursing facilities will be surveyed under this process by 2012. While the regulations have remained the same, the survey process is different. Is your facility ready? The QIS process should become part of every nursing facility's Quality Improvement program. Resident, family and staff interviews have been a critical part of the QIS process and will be discussed to help prepare your facility for the interview process. Learn how to use the QIS tools and hear other tips to get your facility familiar and ready for this new process. Some of the deficiencies cited under QIS are being cited at higher rates than under the traditional survey process. This program will also provide a review of survey outcomes in NY since QIS has been implemented in 2010 and strategies to assist your facility to prepare.
