Every year brings with it a new Work Plan from the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services (OIG). The Work Plan identifies the areas the OIG will focus on this year as it conducts investigations, audits and inspections. Now is a good time for nursing home boards and executives to perform an annual "check-up" on their operations to make sure the nursing home is focused on the same issues as the federal government.
