Skilled Nursing Facilities - Unreported Incidents of Potential Abuse and Neglect
Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are institutions that provide skilled nursing care, including rehabilitation and various medical and nursing procedures. Ongoing OIG reviews at other settings indicate the potential for unreported instances of abuse and neglect. We will assess the incidence of abuse and neglect of Medicare beneficiaries receiving treatment in SNFs and determine whether these incidences were properly reported and investigated in accordance with applicable Federal and State requirements. We will also interview State officials to determine if each sampled incident was reported, if required, and whether each reportable incident was investigated and subsequently prosecuted by the State, if appropriate.
