If a surveyor showed up at your door tomorrow would your hospital be prepared?
This program will discuss the proposed changes to the infection control standards. This includes a requirement to have an antibiotic stewardship program. The infection preventionist would have to be appointed by the board after approval by the CNO and Medical Executive Committee. There are many additional changes that will be discussed.
Join us, as our expert covers in detail CMS infection control worksheet used to assess compliance with the infection control hospital CoPs. The worksheets are used by State and Federal surveyors when assessing compliance with the infection control standards. Infection control is hit hard during the survey and every hospital should have a working familiarity with this important document. This is the first time CMS has ever had tracers. Hospitals should develop tracer tools to match this worksheet. Accreditation organizations may also ask similar questions since all four must apply for deemed status from CMS.
