Important Information on Reporting of Resident Deaths:
HHSC Long-term Care Regulatory has extended the deadline for submitting August 2018 and September 2018 death reports until the tenth workday in November (November 14, 2018). This will also be the deadline for submitting October 2018 death reports.
With the implementation of the Texas Unified Licensure Information Portal (TULIP) on September 4, 2018, all reporting of resident death information must now be completed in TULIP. The deadline for reporting deaths is within ten workdays after the last day of the month in which a resident death occurred (Texas Administrative Code §19.606). This would make September 17, 2018, as the deadline for reporting August deaths and October 12, 2018 for September deaths. However, in order to mitigate the potential delay in completing registrations within TULIP, the deadlines for August 2018, September 2018, and October 2018, death reports are now due by November 14, 2018.
In order to submit resident death information in TULIP, the Legal Entity that owns the Nursing Facility must first designate an individual as a security authority to register the Legal Entity in TULIP and provide access to the individual(s) who is responsible for submitting death reports.For more information about the TULIP, please visit the TULIP information page HERE, or contact Long-term Care Licensing & Credentialing at 512-438-2630
