Nursing CoPs have gone through many changes in the past few years, and there are more proposed changes scheduled for 2017. It is crucial that all nurses are trained on the CMS nursing chapter so hospitals won’t get fined for deficiencies.
CMS made significant changes to the nursing chapter, including: IV medication administration, blood transfusion, safe opioid standards, safe injection practices, compounding, and beyond use date. Other changes include timing of medications, standing orders, restraint reporting, plan of care, verbal orders, QAPI final worksheets, discharge planning, and infection control.
This program will address all of the changes in the nursing chapter and reference important sections found outside of nursing services that nurses should be aware of.
