Preparation for Launch of New Long-Term Care Survey Process (LTCSP)
The new computer-based LTCSP will be effective November 28, 2017.
• Appendix P will no longer be available: Beginning with surveys occurring on November 28, 2017, Appendix P will no longer
be accessible. The LTCSP procedure guide will replace Appendix P as the procedural and technical guide for conducting LTC
standard surveys. Chapter 7 of the State Operations Manual (SOM) will be revised to include survey policy.
• Survey Resources: A link to resources surveyors will need to conduct LTC surveys will be made available on November 17,
2017. Surveyors must download items included on this link to their survey laptops by November 28, 2017.
