Emergency Preparedness Plan Checklist

This checklist is designed to allow long-term care facilities perform a self-assessment for their readiness in the CMS Emergency Preparedness Program.
It is intended to be used as a guide to help a facility review and assess these areas to ensure compliance and assist the facility to prevent citations.

This checklist and EPP citation guide can be used when a facility is assessing their current emergency preparedness plan and for subsequent annual reviews.
