What part does rounding play in cost savings?

Consistent rounding within your facility helps identify deficiencies and damage that may not have been reported. Some deficiencies may be of a larger scale that require further project design so being proactive allows you the ability to pre-plan projects and helps eliminate unforeseen circumstances that may arise. Eliminating these issues prior to your accreditation survey also reduces the risk of having to respond immediately to a finding to fix the issue identified. When that occurs, you're placed in a situation where you have no bargaining power with your vendor to fix the issue since its urgent. This means paying extra money for time and materials to resolve problems prior to your accrediting agency completing their onsite survey.

Cost-benefit wise, what do you see as the benefits of a mock survey?

The mock survey process helps the organization identify and respond to areas of need prior to their regulatory inspection. Many times organizations focus on areas that are deemed important by hospital leadership or individual(s) responsible for life safety compliance. This results in wasted time and money. It can also create situations where other areas are overlooked. The mock survey identifies specific items to focus on in multiple areas to reduce time and effort and minimize issues that may arise during their official survey process. An ill-prepared hospital can be subjected to multiple re-surveys if issues are found by their accrediting agency. Our process is geared towards reducing that possibility by working directly with the team and assisting in fixing identified deficiencies/observations prior to their official review.
