Effective November 28, 2019, the Phase III requirements of the Long Term Care Requirements of Participation require all nursing facilities to implement a Compliance and Ethics program consistent with the dictates of 42 CFR § 483.85 (F895). The Rule obligates facilities to have a written compliance and ethics program in place that is likely to be effective in preventing and detecting criminal, civil, and administrative violations under the Social Security Act and in promoting quality of care. The Regulation lists multiple requirements for the program, which relate to historical compliance guidance issued by other federal agencies, including the Office of the Inspector General.
