OIG report shows survey focus on infection control in home health

A recent home health audit by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) serves as a reminder to keep up your focus on infection control policies and procedures.

The audit found that six out of eight agencies reviewed were in full compliance. Still, it opens the door for CMS surveyors to probe extensively in this area. For this reason, agencies should take the time to brush up on infection control policies to ensure they are in compliance with CMS standards.
