Product Description

Get the Inside Scoop on the 2019 CMS Nursing Conditions of Participation

According to the CMS deficiency reports on the most problematic standards for hospitals, nursing services have been cited over 4,740 times in the recent past. The scrutiny and surveillance to ensure compliance with hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) has increased, and the proposed nursing chapter changes in 2019 have added a new dimension of complexity. If your facility accepts Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, you can’t afford to be caught off guard and put your hospital’s reimbursement at risk. If a surveyor showed up at your door tomorrow, would you be prepared?

Get the inside scoop on the 2019 CMS nursing CoPs for hospitals in this webinar by industry expert Sue Dill Calloway. Calloway will bring you up to speed with the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual, and the significant changes to standards that hospitals are still struggling to comply with – such as medication management, IV, blood, and opioid safe use. You will learn about the proposed changes under the Hospital Improvement Rule, and the recent CMS memos of interest relating to hospital deficiencies, safe injection practices, new interpretative guidelines, and more.

You will also learn about other important sections that all nurses should be aware of, such as those that are found outside the nursing services section, like: medication standards, verbal orders, history and physicals, visitation, restraint and seclusion, grievances, discharge planning standards, and privacy and confidentiality. Calloway will also apprise you of the problematic standards for hospitals; educational requirements; changes in standing orders and protocols; CMS’ deficiency reports, and the problematic tag numbers you should be aware to ensure compliance.

This webinar will be useful for facilities accredited by the Joint Commission, Health Care Facility Accreditation Program, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare, who are also required to follow these regulations.
