Action Plan Response for Adverse Events

Sara Rudow

AHCA's Survey Regulatory Committee has developed two new sets of tools, for SNFs and ALs, to help providers put steps in place to address an adverse event or potential adverse event and link it with their QAPI process. Each set of tools includes an overview with the goals and purpose of the tools, a fillable Initial Mitigation Action Plan document outlining four key steps in the mitigation process, two sample mitigation action plans providing examples of how to use the action plan tool, and another fillable tool for linking the mitigation action plan with an organization’s QAPI process. Centers and communities should feel free to use and adapt these tools as best fits their organizational processes and cultures. We thank the members of the Survey/Regulatory Committee for their hard work in developing these tools and hope you find them useful in improving your organizations’ systems and responses to adverse events. Should you have any questions, please contact educate@ahca.org
