All facilities accredited by TJC, AOA, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must adhere to the CMS CoPs. This 525-page manual contains interpretive guidelines, policies, procedures, and standards that must be followed for all patients treated within the hospital or any hospital-owned department.
In just the last year, CMS has rewritten all of the radiology and nuclear medicine sections, created five new quality measures, included the definition of spouse for individuals of same sex marriages, implemented 10 tag number changes in pharmacy, changed tag 405 in nursing, and proposed sweeping changes to the discharge planning standards. This five-part webinar series will guide attendees through the entire CMS Hospital CoP manual. It is a great way to on-board new hires or educate existing employees on the sections of the CMS hospital manual that are applicable to their job functions.
There have been a record-breaking number of survey and certification memos issued over the past year. Are you ready for the surveyor?
