Unannounced Surveys in ASCs:
A Guide for Staff Preparedness
Train your ASC staff to be ready for the unexpected. . .
Dreading your next survey? Surveyors from the Joint Commission, CMS, and numerous state agencies can now show up at your facility on any given day with little or no advance warning—and the stakes are high.

That’s why it’s so important for your staff to learn how to juggle their critical daily responsibilities with accurately and respectfully answering questions from a surveyor. But how do you train your staff to react appropriately when surveyors come knocking?
