In an attempt to decrease the U.S. maternal morbidity and mortality statistics, more and more states are moving toward an official survey process to designate the appropriate level (I-IV) of maternal care for all hospitals. If your facility is seeking a Level II, III, or IV designation, you will require a state survey. This survey is a 2-day process and requires months of preparation,
commitment from nurses, physicians, other hospital departments, and all ancillary services. The Farley Group can help you prepare for these surveys through remote, or on-site consulting. In addition, we offer a 1, 1.5, and 2-day on-site mock designation survey. Dr. Farley has experienced two surveys personally, and performed several surveys as a MLoC surveyor in Texas.
