AHCA Update: Notification Guidelines for Confirmed COVID-19 Cases
Updated: Apr 18
Today, AHCA/NCAL released new guidance and a press statement on notifying public health officials and stakeholders about confirmed cases of COVID-19 in long term care facilities. This guidance reinforces much of what long term care providers are already doing and are currently required to do in their states. Our guidance today suggests that long term care providers should also report to the state survey agency, if you are not already, so that CMS and other federal agencies have another way to gather national information.
