If a CMS surveyor arrived at your hospital tomorrow, would your facility pass the survey? How about the standards and quality portion?

As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, hospitals that rank in the quartile of hospitals with the highest total HAC scores will have their CMS payments reduced by 1%. AHC Media’s speaker, Sue Dill Calloway, will lead a new webinar: “Hospital Infection Control Worksheet: the Latest from CMS Office of Standards & Quality” on December 1 to guide your team through the new updates. During this session, we'll explore the implications of CMS' publication of infection control deficiencies, along with case studies from hospitals found out of compliance.
