Nursing Homes: Opportunities Exist to Facilitate the Use of the Temporary Management Sanction
John E. Dicken (au)
The nation's 1.4 million nursing home residents are a highly vulnerable population of elderly and disabled individuals for whom remaining at home is no longer feasible. The fed. government sets quality requirements that nursing homes must meet to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and contracts with states to conduct routine inspections -- called standard surveys -- and complaint investigations. To encourage compliance with quality requirements, Congress has authorized certain enforcement actions, known as sanctions, such as civil money penalties or termination from participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible for imposing fed. sanctions, typically on the basis of states' recommendations. One sanction -- temporarily replacing a home's management -- has been used infrequently. According to CMS guidance, temporary management may be used instead of termination in cases where nursing homes place residents at risk of death or serious injury -- referred to as immediate jeopardy -- or place residents at widespread risk of actual harm. CMS requires that a nursing home remove any immediate jeopardy within a short time frame of 23 calendar days after the survey or complaint investigation in which it was cited, with or without the assistance of temporary management. Otherwise, CMS will terminate the home from Medicare and Medicaid. In some cases, the nursing home's owner may choose to sell the home to a new owner while the home is still under temporary management. This report focused on (1) CMS and states' experience with the use of fed. temporary management and its effectiveness in achieving compliance in the short and longer term; and (2) obstacles to the use of fed. temporary management and how such obstacles could be addressed. The report also examined whether changes in ownership occurred when nursing homes were under fed. temporary management and to identify obstacles to such ownership changes. Tables.
