The Long-Term Care State Operations Manual

On October 4, 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ final rule to reform requirements for long-term care facilities made the most sweeping changes to Conditions of Participation and the long-term care industry since 1991. These revisions mandate everything from requiring skilled nursing facilities to prove additional staff training and hiring scrutiny in an effort to protect against abuse and exploitation, to bolstering health and safety standards in an effort to head off preventable rehospitalizations.

Stay compliant with the most up-to-date regulations, interpretive guidelines, and newly assigned Ftags, and adhere to CMS’ guidance and survey requirements effective November 2017 with The Long-Term Care State Operations Manual.

This manual will enable you to: 

  • Stay compliant with complete access to all recent F-tag revisions
  • Save time searching and downloading extensive government documents
  • Manage risk by understanding the scope and severity for each possible deficiency
  • Download and use all essential CMS forms to ensure thorough survey preparation


This valuable resource provides word-for-word CMS regulatory guidance and forms covering virtually every aspect of a nursing home’s annual survey, including:

  • F-tags and their accompanying surveyor guidance
  • Scope and severity for each possible deficiency
  • Essential CMS forms to download and use
  • Guidance for policymaking
  • Risk management advice


Please note: This version of The Long-Term Care State Operations Manual does not include Appendix P, Surveyor Protocol for Long-Term Care Facilities. A two-page Reserve file is only available at this time which can be found here.
