In March 2020, CMS announced a new, targeted inspection plan designed to
help keep nursing home residents safe in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The plan called for focused inspections on urgent patient safety threats
(called "immediate jeopardy") and infection control. These targeted
inspections allow CMS to focus inspections on the most urgent situations,
so the agency can get the information it needs to ensure safety, while
not getting in the way of patient care.
