​Since there are no SNF regulations related specifically to credentialing, we use the Joint Commission standards for our credentialing program.  I have attached the two main standards.

Are you talking about your medical director? Or the MD that are your resident's personal doctors? We do not credential the later.

​We complete a review of their license and insurance, check the exclusion listing and require they sign an agreement that includes reference to them notifying the facility of any conflict of interest/financial interest.

We do this for all physicians - attendings, specialists and Medical Directors.

Does your state have any specific requirement?
