CMS HOSPITAL CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION 2023 – PART 2

Complete Hospital Manual

About the Series:

Nash Healthcare Consulting’s (NHC) live programs cover the entire CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation manual. All Hospitals that accept payment for Medicare and Medicaid patients must comply with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Conditions of Participation. The Conditions of Participation manual has interpretive guidelines that must be followed for all patients treated in the hospital or hospital-owned departments. Facilities accredited by the Joint Commission, HFAP, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must follow these regulations.

This program is a great way to educate your hospital employees on all the sections in the CMS hospital manual, especially ones that apply to their respective departments.  Speakers will discuss the most problematic standards as well as how the hospital can do a gap analysis to assist in compliance with the Conditions of Participation. This is a must attend for experienced employees that need a refresher, or newer employees to become familiar with compliance standards.

Who Should Attend:

CEOs, chief operations officers, chief nursing officers, chief legal officers, nurses and medical staff, quality managers, nurse educators, risk managers, compliance officers, chief of health information, pharmacists, social workers, discharge planners, patient safety officers, outpatient director, director of rehab, infection control, directors of radiology.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recall that CMS has restraint standards that hospitals must follow.
  • Describe that the patient has a right to file a grievance and the hospital must have a grievance policy and procedure in place.
  • Recall that interpreters should be provided for patients with limited English proficiency, and this should be documented in the medical record.
  • Discuss that the term LIP (licensed independent practitioner) has been changed to LP (licensed practitioner) to allow PAs to order restraints.
