Researchers from Johns Hopkins found that misplaced consent forms cost hospitals $580,000 each year, and 66% of patients were missing signed consent forms at surgery, delaying 10% of surgical procedures. Informed consent is a process and not just a signed form.
This program will provide the current CMS CoPs for hospitals and critical access hospitals, and The Joint Commission and DNV Healthcare standards on informed consent requirements. It will cover the 6 mandatory elements in an informed consent form, specific state laws on informed consent, and guidelines on informed consent from the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Anesthesiologists, and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. Our expert will analyze how informed consent is different for hospitals and critical access hospitals.
