The OHA and Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) Medical Facilities Division are collaborating to provide education regarding hospital licensure, CMS certification or complaint surveys. The education will take place in five locations across Oklahoma in February.  

Several OSDH staff members, including actual surveyors, will discuss their role in the regulatory survey process along with teaching the expectations for sections of the survey where hospitals receive the most deficiencies.

The objectives of the meetings are:
  • Become familiar with the types of surveys hospitals may experience.
  • Discuss the expectations related to the most common Conditions of Participation citations.
  • Understand the levels of deficiencies and the core elements of a plan of correction.
  • Receive resources to help your hospital have a successful survey.
There will be a time for questions and answers.

Feb. 12 – OHA office in Oklahoma City
