If CMS or Joint Commission showed up tomorrow at your door, would you be in compliance with the advance directive requirements? Did you know that there was a federal law that addresses advance directives that all hospitals must be in compliance? Did you know that CMS reimburses some physicians for advance care planning? Hospitals need to do this right or they can face a wrongful death or medical malpractice case.
Better end-of-life care can result in reduced readmissions. There were 2,573 hospitals who were penalized 564 million dollars for having a higher readmission rate. It is important to engage with the patient on what matters to them at end-of-life care and to respect their wishes for care.
This webinar will discuss the CMS hospital conditions of participation on advance directives along with the Joint Commission standards to help hospitals ensure compliance with the standards. Hospitals have received a high number of deficiencies in this area and this program will cover in detail advance directives such as living will, durable power of attorney, organ donation, mental health declaration, organ donor cards, patient advocates and do not resuscitate orders.
Anyone who is involved in the implemention of the CMS grievance, DNV, OCR, or Joint Commission complaint standards, including but not limited to: CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CMOs, CNOs, nurses (all levels), Joint Commission Coordinators, department directors, board members, quality improvement coordinators, risk managers, legal counsel, patient safety officers, emergency department managers, compliance officers, clinic managers, nurse directors (OR, ICU, CCU), outpatient directors, HIPAA privacy and security officers, director of business office, lab directors, and policy and procedure committee.
