DNV GL Healthcare will conduct full, deemed reaccreditation surveys remotely, under certain conditions approved by CMS. Other accreditation organizations (AO) are declining to do so. But CMS says virtual survey processes will be allowed only during the current public health emergency (PHE).

In general, the conditions set by CMS include that the hospital must be located in an area where the safety threat level from the COVID-19 PHE is still high or medium, have had few or no infection control deficiencies during its last two surveys, have no condition-level deficiencies or immediate jeopardy situations, and have no outstanding ligature risk problems.
