New Mexico Support for Culture Change

The State Survey Agency was a founding member of the New Mexico culture change coalition which began in late 2004. They have since been represented on the board of directors and have supported all culture change efforts in the state. In June 2005, a group of surveyors participated in a coalition education meeting entitled, "Culture Change and the Regulations: How Do We Get to Yes?" which helped alleviate some fears nursing homes had with moving forward with implementing culture change ideas. The SSA has supported the attendance of surveyors at several culture change trainings throughout the past five years and they continue to be involved with planning future events.
