On August 7, 2020, CDPH implement an online application for conducting surveys and investigations. CDPH first deployed RSS for COVID-19 Mitigation Surveys with plans to deploy additional functions in the future. This AFL announces that CDPH will begin using RSS for complaints/FRI investigations in phases based on the deployment schedule below.
The RSS Complaint/FRI Survey Tool will initially only be used in SNFs; however, CDPH will roll out to other healthcare facility types as we build additional functionality into the online system.
CDPH will begin using RSS for complaint/FRIs according to the following schedule:
|Life Safety Code, State Facilities, Sacramento, San Diego, San Bernardino, and San Francisco||01/10/2022|
|East Bay, Santa Rosa, Bakersfield, Los Angeles State Regional Office (LASRO), LA Region 3, Fresno, and Ventura||01/24/2022|
|LA Region 1, Orange, Chico, LA Region 2, San Jose, and Riverside||02/07/2022|
If CDPH processes a complaint/FRI via RSS, CDPH will send an email invitation to the facility's point(s)-of-contact stating, "CDPH has invited you to create an account." The facility's point(s)-of-contact will need to follow the instructions in the email to create an account.
