QIS Tag?

Recommended Posts

Hey All

I got this in my email. Does anyone know what it means? Please explain to us if you do know. Has anyone gotten state surveyors in building trigging these Tags & if so which tags is it?



Tip of the week: Getting to know Stage II of the QIS


During Stage II, state surveyors use the Critical Element Pathways for each triggered care area, triggered by exceeding the threshold, to guide them systematically through a more in-depth review. This, in turn, will determine the associated F-tags for noncompliance. The Critical Element Pathway worksheets and the Unnecessary Drug worksheets indicate which F-tags may be cited for noncompliance. They include the following:


  • CMS-20065 Activities
  • CMS-20066 ADL/ROM
  • CMS-20067 Behavioral/Emotional Problems
  • CMS-20068 Bowel/Bladder/Catheter
  • CMS-20069 Communication/Sensory Problem
  • CMS-20070 Dental
  • CMS-20071 Dialysis
  • CMS-20072 General
  • CMS-20073 Hospice & Palliative Care
  • CMS-20074 Hospitalization or Death
  • CMS-20075 Nutrition/Hydration/Tube Feeding
  • CMS-20076 Pain Management
  • CMS-20077 Physical Restraints
  • CMS-20078 Pressure Ulcers
  • CMS-20079 Psychoactive Medication
  • CMS-20080 Rehabilitation and Community Discharge
  • CMS-20081 Ventilator
  • CMS-20082 Unnecessary Drugs

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
