Title: Civil Money Penalties and Exclusion Authority to Enforce 1150B Requirements (CMS-3359-P) 

To fully enforce section 1150B of the Social Security Act requirements for reporting crimes to nursing home residents, this proposed rule would allow Civil Money Penalties (CMPs) to be imposed against covered individuals (staff, volunteers, etc.) who fail to report reasonable suspicion of crimes. This rule would also facilitate a 2-year exclusion for retaliating against individuals who report. Although CMS has the authority to impose CMPs against nursing homes, rulemaking is required to facilitate CMPs and exclusions imposed against covered individuals.
