Within the article, the assisted living facility expert witness meticulously examines the latest criteria introduced by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the Special Focus Facilities (SFF) program.

Furthermore, Dr. Kella highlights the ramifications of non-compliance with the new criteria set forth by CMS, emphasizing the importance of maintaining high-quality standards of care to mitigate legal risks. He underscores the significance of proactive measures that SNFs can adopt to navigate the complex medico legal landscape and ensure optimal resident care while meeting regulatory requirements.

By offering a thorough examination of the implications of the SFF program in 2024, Dr. Kella’s article serves as a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, legal experts, and SNF administrators seeking clarity on the regulatory challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the realm of skilled nursing facilities.
