Exercises & Drills

As of October 2016, the Center for Medicaid/Medicare (CMS) requires LTC facilities to complete and document two annual exercises - one needs to be a full-scale exercise (FSX), and the second can be a table top exercise (TTX). Many counties in California participate in the Statewide Medical Health Exercise, which occurs in November every year. The Great California ShakeOut program also provides exercise scenarios for healthcare facilities.
