CMS has finalized the worksheet for assessing compliance with the infection CoPs. The CMS Infection Control worksheet now covers more than what is discussed in the CoPs, including tracers.
The Hospital-Acquired Condition (HAC) Reduction Program is in effect for 2017. As part of this effort, your antibiotic stewardship program should be up and running. We will cover the requirements of this program as well as the proposed infection control standards. In addition to the CMS requirements, this webinar will provide information about CDC and ISMP IV guidelines for safe injection practices.
