• Flag key documents and policies with sticky tabs for easy refer- ence. Being organized is key. When the surveyor asks for specific doc- uments, she'll be pleased that you're able to locate them easily. Keep everything up to date by maintaining a "compliance calendar" in which you maintain all actions and documents required for compli- ance by frequency and date. • Check in every half hour to answer the surveyor's questions and provide clarification during the document review process (but don't hover!). • When you're unsure of an answer or not clear on a recommenda- tion, ask for clarification. • Keep staff in the loop, and ask for help when you need it. I used our "groupme" app to communicate what was going on to the staff and to remind them to "wash hands/check bands!" (We installed the app and set up our center as a group as part of our disaster preparation plan for alternative communica- tion.)
