Late Friday evening, January 28, 2022, CMS posted a second update to the LTC survey process:

On that same page you’ll find the 2 Survey Resources .zip folders (2nd one renamed) beneath Downloads along with the update Revision History document (shown above):

Identification of the inclusion of QSO-20-39-NH Revised is just that – its inclusion. It was last updated November 12, 2021, with no changes since that time.

You’ll want to access, review and utilize the updated CMS-20054 along with the updated FIC Entrance Conference Worksheet and CMS-20062 Sufficient and Competent Staff Critical Element Pathway (updated November 2021).
