OBRA Survey (7 Task Process)

The OBRA survey is conducted to make sure that the nursing home is meeting state and federal standards which spell out very specifically how care must be provided to nursing home residents. Areas reviewed are quality of care and quality of life in the facility, identifying whether residence rights are being preserved and the environment meets the standards of cleanliness and is hazard free.

QIS (9 Task Process)

The QIS is a process in which surveyors, selecting from a large sample of residents, and comprehensive chart issues, make focused observations, and obtain standardized interviews. The large samples enable surveyors to be more informed and to make better inferences about the patterns of care at a facility. The process has two stages and nine distinct tasks through which surveyors determined the facility’s compliance with the federal nursing home regulations.
