In the April issue, we launched a new feature highlighting the top deficiencies found by CMS surveyors at a hospital and asking for your input on what was wrong and how to fix it.

We also asked Steven A. MacArthur, a senior consultant with The Greeley Company in Danvers, Massachusetts, to review the information and offer his input on the deficiencies and a plan of correction.
The details of the survey, conducted in Florida late last year at a 75-bed behavioral health hospital with both inpatient and outpatient programs, was taken from a CMS Form-2567 “Statement of Deficiencies” posted online by the federal agency under its Quality, Certification and Oversight Reports (QCOR) group, at https://qcor.cms.gov/hosp_cop/HospitalCOPs.html.
