SNF Community Compliance

Brenda Klutz, LeadingAge California's Policy Consultant, has developed a Skilled Nursing Community Compliance Manual to provide senior care providers and their staffs with practical, up-to-date guidance on reporting mandates and circumstances in which prior approval is required from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Download the table of contents to preview.

This manual is recommended for any skilled nursing community leadership and staff members who are responsible for communicating efforts to CDPH or who must be aware of reporting/prior authorization requirements at any level.
