§ 101.62. Combined survey.
(a) A provider may request that the Department consider, during the determination of the Department whether a particular hospital is in compliance with these regulations, the survey report of the Federal government or a nationally recognized accrediting agency if the provider has been issued a regular license covering the particular hospital to be surveyed for the last 3 years.
(b) If a provider requests to be licensed in accordance with subsection (a), it must submit to the Department a copy of the accrediting survey report of the agency within 7 days of receipt.
(c) If a provider requests to be licensed in accordance with subsection (a), it must comply with all requirements of this subpart. The requirements that are not covered by the standard survey of each approved accrediting agency are listed in Appendix B.
(d) The Department will have the sole authority to accept or reject, in whole or in part, the findings of the accrediting agency.
(1) If the accrediting findings of the agency are rejected, a full or partial survey at the discretion of the Department will be conducted by the surveyors of the Department to determine whether a license can be issued.
(2) If the accrediting agency denies accreditation to a provider, a full State survey will be conducted to determine whether a license can be issued.
(3) If a provider chooses not to apply for a license through the accrediting procedure even though qualified to do so under this section, a full State survey will be conducted to determine whether a license can be issued.
(4) For those portions of the accrediting agency survey report which the Department accepts as evidence that the provider is meeting the provisions of this subpart, the provider will be considered to be in full compliance with the corresponding provisions of this subpart.
