CMS Launches ‘Compreshensive Review’ of Nursing Homes Regulation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has launched a review of regulations and processes governing safety and quality of care in the nation’s nursing homes, Administrator Seema Verma said.

“While we support and promote the private sector’s critical role in our healthcare system, CMS’ duty to monitor the safety of the nation’s hospitals, nursing homes, and other providers, is a unique governmental task which lies at the core of government’s role in healthcare,” Verma said in a media release.

“I have directed my team at CMS to undertake a comprehensive review of our regulations, guidelines, internal structure, and processes related to safety and quality in nursing homes,” she said.
