Notice Regarding Suspension of Surveys Due to COVID-19

As you are aware, President Trump has declared a national emergency regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is fluid with daily changes and updates to recommendations. In the interest of limiting ​the exposure of patients, facility staff, and our surveyors to the COVID-19 virus, ​and in order to reduce the burden on facilities that are devoting their efforts to combating the transmission of COVID-19, Quad A is suspending routine on-site ​resurvey activities. ​However, due to the National call to increase healthcare capacity, Quad A may continue to conduct initial surveys on a case by case basis.

 We will be working directly with these facilities ​that require surveys as needed​, in many cases to provide modified services in response to the emergency situation. In addition, Quad A will continue to provide certain surveys at the discretion of the Quad A Board, including in response to complaints related to Infection Control or patient abuse. 

 Quad A will work with facilities that are due for re​-accreditation surveys ​on all pre-survey activities up to the point of scheduling the onsite survey. Such facilities will be contacted directly and advised of further steps that may need to be taken. Quad A will continue to consider valid the Accreditation and Medicare participation ​of facilities whose accreditation expire​s during this suspension. Postponed on-site re​-accreditation surveys will be conducted once normal operations resume.
