Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) New LTC Regulations
In Fall of 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a complete overhaul of the Nursing Home, Long-Term Care (LTC) regulations. These rules represents the first major update of these regulations in 25 years – setting new staffing, patient protections, and compliance requirements for LTC facilities. CMS has adopted a phased approach for the rollout, spreading out implementation of the various requirements over the next three years, November 2016, 2017, and 2018.
