WEBINAR: The CMS Hospital Infection Control


The CMS Hospital Infection Control Worksheet, Proposed Changes and Antibiotic Stewardship Program

Course Curriculum
Infection control is hit hard during a hospital survey, so every facility should have a full-working familiarity with the CMS interpretive guidelines, as well as the proposed changes for assessing compliance with the infection control Conditions of Participation (CoPs).

This presentation will explain what staff need to do to be ready for surveyors, and will provide them with a better understanding of the CMS infection control interpretative guidelines and worksheet. This program will also discuss the proposed infection control standards and changes, including the requirement to have an antibiotic stewardship program. Our presenter will also review important memos on infection control issues from CMS, ISMP IV guidelines and safe injection practices issues, and other facets of this worksheet.
