What is a CMS is the List of Special Focus Facilities? – Special Focus Facility

List of Special Focus Facilities – The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and States visit nursing homes on a regular basis to determine if the nursing homes are providing the quality of care that Medicare and Medicaid requires. These “survey” or “inspection” teams will identify deficiencies in the quality of care that is provided. They also identify any deficiencies in meeting CMS safety requirements (such as protection from fire hazards). When deficiencies are identified, we require that the problems be corrected.

This current list of Special Focus Facilities can be found at the CMS website.
