Comagine Health has created a template for Long Term Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) facilities to use when drafting and updating policies on visitation of residents. These templates are up to date with 2023 regulations and requirement guidelines from CMS (Center for Medicaid Services) and recommendations from CDC (Centers for Disease Control).
The visitation policy template is intended to be edited, replacing all italicized text with facility specific processes, to make valid for facility use. This policy is evaluated during surveys, and it is suggested to review and update it, at least annually. A visitor policy is a strategy that is intended to provide instructions to the long-term care (LTC) healthcare team members on the most current requirements for resident visitation to follow during infectious disease outbreaks.
We encourage you to look at this free templates to use or compare and update your current policies.
A similar template policy is also available for cohorting.
