Avoid the Most Frequently Cited F Tag and Prepare Your Staff with Required Education

The most frequently cited F-Tag in standard nursing facility health inspection surveys under the new survey process is F880 – Infection Prevention & Control.  Since November 2017 when the new survey process began, more than one-third of surveys conducted across the nation have included a F880 Infection Prevention & Control citation. 

AHCA’s course is an online, self-study program with 23 hours of training that meets the educational requirements outlined by CMS. It includes online lectures, case studies and interactive components taught by subject matter experts who have real life experience working in long term/post-acute care.  The AHCA program gets rave reviews with 97 percent of health care professionals who have completed the course recommending IPCO to their colleagues. 

Avoid the F880 tag.   Prepare your center and staff now for success in infection prevention and control under the new survey process: Register for IPCO!

To access ahcancalED and the IPCO course, members will need to login with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords.  For assistance obtaining AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords, please e-mail update@ahca.org with your name and facility contact information
