Traditional long term care has evolved to increased sub-acute and rehabilitative care, inspiring new regulatory changes and increased scrutiny. In addition, the expectations of facility residents and their families are growing.

This invaluable guide provides insight into what's ahead for professionals in the field and the evolving compliance and regulatory issues they'll face.
It covers:
•  The evolution of the nursing home survey process
•  Residents' rights and facility practices
•  The importance of nursing facility agreements
•  Compliance issues, including federal and state reimbursement requirements
•  Facilities' ability to challenge enforcement remedies imposed against them
•  Fraud and abuse issues that affect the industry
•  Development of new systems and relationships that respond to incentives under the Affordable Care Act

Also covered: What to consider when building, buying or selling a post-acute care facility. Learn more about financing for construction or acquisition of nursing homes, continuing care and assisted living facilities.
