Effective immediately the survey and inspection teams will no longer have facilities complete or verify their Licensed and Certified Bed Classification forms (DA 113) at the time of inspection/survey. Instead, we will ask facilities to review and verify the accuracy of the most recent approved bed listing that we have on file during the relicensure-application process every two years. The most recent approved listing will be provided to facilities in their relicensure packet for easy reference.
We hope this change will make it easier to verify the continued accuracy of our records and it will be one less thing to worry about during the onsite survey process for you and our staff.
