(This amendment funds additional staff to conduct nursing home surveys and inspections within the Department of Health’s Center for Quality Health Services and Consumer Protection. The intent of these positions is to provide the Department with additional staffing flexibility to conduct follow-up survey visits in a timely manner and to provide appropriate compliance assistance to nursing facilities. Non-general funds provided in this amendment are contingent upon approval of the additional positions by the U.S. Health Care Financing Administration, on behalf of which the Department of Health surveys nursing facilities for participation in Medicaid and/or Medicare.)
