ESRD Consumer Reports

The Acute Care Division of the Indiana State Department of Health is pleased to make ESRD information available to consumers and the general public.

This information is being made available to increase public awareness of the availability and quality of the services provided to clients with disabilities in the State of Indiana.  The information in the consumer report will also assist clients, and their families or guardians, in making an informed choice of right ESRD provider for a particular client.

About the Surveys:

 Surveys are unannounced

 Surveyors, who have nursing backgrounds, are trained and certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

 A survey report is sent to the ESRD after each survey

The ESRD must submit a written Plan of Correction in response to any noncompliance of Federal requirements cited on the survey report.

 A follow-up survey may be made to verify that compliance has been achieved

Only a sample of patients are selected for observation, interview and record review.

 Surveys usually last only 3 days and thus are only a snapshot of the conditions at the ESRD at that time.
