hi folks - am just getting back to catching up. Was recently in hosp/rehab I was sick, like big time. Having hard time navigating new format. I can't seem to find this site easily!
Have questions - how is someone contacted by CMS? for a report on their recent institutional stays??? Like who surveys? How soon after discharge??
I need to do this - nobody deserves to have experienced what I went through. I'm pretty much a non-complainer, but my stays had serious NEGATIVE impact that in good conscience -I feel I HAVE TO folllowup. I am talking about calling out all the stops.
I found out that NJ does NOT have a CNA program for 'CNA of the Year'. (I called the NJDOH.) I do have someone I'd like to recognize, so I've figured out something else. I think I survived because of that CNA!!! He deserves the highest kudos.
I always held the position that filing complaints doesn't affect much, and people are too quick to complain. But my recent experiences offends and violates too much, even for me.
