Dietary, Food & Nutrition Services: Meet the CMS Hospital & CAH CoPs

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently made three significant changes to the dietary guidelines for hospitals and rewrote all the dietary guidelines for critical access hospitals (CAHs). And if your hospital is still struggling to ensure compliance with these new requirements, you’re not alone.

Learn how to comply with the CMS hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) on dietary, food, and nutrition services in this information-packed webinar by regulatory compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. These hospital CoP requirements are crucial elements of the CMS survey and have endured increased scrutiny, especially in the area of infection control.

After attending this webinar, you will walk away with an in-depth understanding of the CMS hospital CoP requirements for dietary, food, and nutrition services. You’ll be armed with the knowledge and tools to avoid the top problematic standards and most common deficiencies that hospitals receive from CMS in this area. You’ll also learn about new CMS guidance on the process for your medical staff and board to credential and privilege qualified dieticians and nutritional specialists.

  • Comply with the final regulations on credentialing and privileging qualified dieticians and nutritional specialists
