We are pleased to announce that effective immediately, the COVID-19 Worksheet and COVID-19 Decision Grid are discontinued for ALL QUAD A facilities, both domestic and international, and for both Medicare and non-Medicare programs. Your facility will not be surveyed for compliance with any of the requirements in these documents.
The COVID-19 Vaccine requirements remain in place for ALL Medicare programs until further notice. We will provide additional information when we receive updated guidance on COVID-19 Vaccine requirements from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Until then all Medicare-certified programs will continue to be surveyed for compliance with the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
As you work to update your facility’s policies and procedures for those items in the COVID-19 Worksheet and COVID-19 Decision Grid, for the health and safety of your patients, visitors, and staff, please keep in mind the basic infection prevention strategies contained in both documents. We encourage your ongoing focus on standard and transmission-based precautions.
We thank you for the continued work that you do each day to keep your patients and staff healthy and safe and for your continued patience in the unrolling of the Public Health Emergency.
At QUAD A, our goal is to be your go-to provider for accreditation – always striving to be an effective, efficient, and easy-to-work-with partner that values education, reliability, and communication.
