SNF/NF Surge Planning Tool

All SNF, NF and SNF/NF are required by Federal regulations to “have detailed written plans and procedures to meet all potential emergencies and disasters, such as fire, severe weather, and missing residents” [ CFR 483.75 (m) F Tag 517 ].

California’s Health and Safety Code (H&S) and California’s Code of Regulations – Title 22, (T22) specify the “details” that are required in the facility emergency plan. To help you prepare for the external disaster plan review during the annual survey process, DHS has prepared the following optional self assessment tool for your use.
