Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) must comply with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Conditions of Participation located in Appendix W in the manual. This four-part webinar will cover the entire CAH CoP manual. The regulations and interpretive guidelines serve as the basis for determining compliance.
There were multiple changes and new regulations for CAHs in 2020, including a change to all the tag numbers. Most of the new Tag numbers do not include Interpretive Guidelines or Survey Procedures. Other changes included twenty-five new tag numbers in infection prevention and control and antibiotic stewardship and ten new tag numbers in QAPI. As for Swing Bed changes – the regulations are limited to Appendix W, but the interpretive guidelines and survey procedures are in Appendix PP.
This seminar will help CAHs comply with specific CoP problem areas, such as nursing care plans, necessary policies and procedures, medication carts and drug storage, informed consent, and medication administration to name a few.
