This webinar will discuss the CMS hospital conditions of participation on advance directives along with the Joint Commission standards to help hospitals ensure compliance with the standards. Hospitals have received a high number of deficiencies in this area and this program will cover in detail advance directives such as living will, durable power of attorney, organ donation, mental health declaration, organ donor cards, patient advocates and do not resuscitate orders.
Join us, as our expert covers in detail CMS infection control worksheet used to assess compliance with the infection control hospital CoPs. The worksheets are used by State and Federal surveyors when assessing compliance with the infection control standards. Infection control is hit hard during the survey and every hospital should have a working familiarity with this important document. This is the first time CMS has ever had tracers. Hospitals should develop tracer tools to match this worksheet. Accreditation organizations may also ask similar questions since all four must apply for deemed status from CMS.
