Phasing Implementation of Life Safety Code Surveys in ESRD Facilities for CY 2010
LSC surveys are being phased into the ESRD survey program in two phases. Phase I includes the implementation of initial
surveys for new facilities, relocation surveys for existing facilities which move to a new location, and complaint surveys
that include allegations related to LSC requirements. LSC surveys for existing ESRD facilities will be implemented following
the development of Interpretive Guidance specific to those surveys, an ESRD LSC Survey Protocol, and a specific Training Module
for ESRD LSC.
