WEBINAR: A New Law for Hospitals


A New Law for Hospitals: Complying With Section 1557 – OCR and CMS Hospital CoPs

Course Curriculum
Our speaker will discuss a law that applies to all hospitals, including critical access hospitals, as well as other healthcare providers such as physician offices and nursing homes. The new law addresses a civil rights law for healthcare providers and others and addresses nondiscrimination, required signs and notices, interpreters, and more under Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act. It builds on long standing and familiar Federal civil rights laws. This is the first law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex (which includes gender, gender identity and sex stereotyping) in covered health programs and activities. Our speaker will also cover the CMS proposed changes to the hospital CoPs to implement this new law under the proposed Hospital Improvement Rule. This webinar will help meet the education requirements to ensure your employees know and follow this law.

Learning Objectives 
At the completion of this program, the participants will be able to: 
1. Identify the CMS proposed changes to the hospital CoPs regarding the Section 1557 rules on nondiscrimination. 
2. Discuss what type of signs hospitals are required to post with regard to nondiscrimination.
3. Describe how the hospital must have 15 taglines so patients are aware they are entitled to an interpreter at no cost. 
4. Recognize that the Office of Civil Rights is the main enforcer of Section 1557.
5. Discuss how the hospital must have a person in charge to work with patients who file a grievance related to nondiscimination. 

Target Audience
The target audiences includes the CEO, COO, CMO, CNO, physicians, nurses, risk managers, nurse managers, human resources, ED managers, physician office and nursing home personnel, compliance officers, hospital legal counsel and others interested in compliance with federal laws and the hospital CoPs.
