New CMS Guidance for In-Home Dialysis

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released updated surveyor guidance on March 22 for End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) venues. This guidance specifically focuses on surveying for nursing home residents receiving “home dialysis services” in the nursing home. ESRD surveys will include visits to the nursing home to survey the home dialysis services that nursing home residents receive. Access the CMS memo here for more details on what to expect.
