This program will cover the CMS standards on anesthesia services, including pre-anesthesia evaluations, post-anesthesia evaluations, hospital anesthesia policies, and deep sedation. Because deep sedation is considered an anesthesia, anesthesia standards are applicable to the emergency department, radiology, GI lab, pain clinic, and any place deep sedation is provided.
Our expert will also discuss four recent changes made in the anesthesia standards and review anesthesia FAQs CMS published. Hospitals are expected to develop policies, procedures and credentialing policies that reflect current anesthesia standards. Join the program and learn how your hospital can ensure compliance!
