I could not locate specific policies for either Indiana, or Mississippi.

I am providing a link to the Medicare State Operations Manual – Appendix PP – Guidance to Surveyors for Long Term Care Facilities.

I warn you – it is not a read you would do for fun – it does, however, provide you with an idea of what state surveyors are looking at when a facility is inspected. Outside of the “good practice” guidelines taught to everyone in nursing school, and your facility’s policy – this section of the Medicare manual may help you understand what you should be documenting.

It was taken directly from the following page at CMS.gov:

Let me know if you have any questions.
