Section 3000, Introductory Visits to Start a Partnership

Revision 15-0; Effective April 1, 2015


Introductory visits began in April 2002, and continue to be provided when new facilities open. These visits introduce the nursing facility to Quality Monitoring Program (QMP) activities and help facilities understand the goals of the QMP. The introductory visits are used to promote positive partnerships with providers, with an emphasis on improving the quality of care and quality of life for residents through evidence-based best practices.
