CMS recently made 3 changes to the hospital dietary guidelines and rewrote the dietary guidelines for critical access hospitals. This program will discuss the CoPs for dietary, food and nutrition services, including the new dietary guidelines for critical access hospitals. CMS published a new rule that allows medical staff and board to credential and privilege qualified dietitians and nutritional specialists to order a patient's diet.
Our expert will also cover The Joint Commission Provision of Care standards, The Joint Commission dietary tracers related to dietetic and food service areas, and review DNV GL's standards on dietetics and nutrition.
