If a CMS surveyor arrived at your hospital tomorrow, would your facility pass the survey? How about the outpatient services portion? Are you prepared?

AHC Media is here to help. During our upcoming webinar, “The Latest and Greatest CMS Nursing CoPs" on Aug. 15, our expert not only will explain the nursing services section of the hospital CoP manual, but also important information applicable to all nurses found outside the nursing services section. There are many changes in the CoPs, including: the timing of medications, standing orders, soft wrist restraints and restraint reporting, plan of care, verbal orders, blood transfusions, IV medication, the third revised worksheet, and drug orders. Other changes address self-administration of medication, standing orders, care plans, and more.
