WEBINAR: Protocols & Standing Orders: CMS & TJC Requirements


Protocols, Standing Orders, Order Sets, and Preprinted Orders: Cracking the Code to the CMS Hospital CoP & TJC Requirements

Course Curriculum
This program will cover the interpretive guidelines and regulations required by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) related to standing orders, protocols, order sets, and preprinted orders. Regarding standing orders, Tag 457 will be discussed, including the four separate sections in the hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) manual which regulate this issue, including the requirements that have been moved from Tag 405 to Tag 457. Additionally, standing orders related to medication approval and radiology standards will be reviewed.

The development of protocols and standing orders is best described as a journey. The session will provide the history of each of the four sections and what each section requires hospitals to do. Ms. Calloway will clarify this confusing area and make the requirements understandable for hospitals. This is especially important as hospitals move toward a complete electronic medical record. 

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:
1. Discuss why hospitals must comply with the CMS CoP requirements. 
2. Give examples of the CMS requirments for standing orders and protocols.
3. Explain how all protocols must be approved by the medical staff even if the protocols are department specific.
4. Describe why a physician must sign off the standing order along with the date and time. 

Target Audience
Senior leadership, CNOs, CMOs, physicians, nursing supervisors and managers, nursing staff, infection preventionists, pharmacy staff, radiology staff, performance improvement and patient safety personnel, compliance and regulatory officers, Joint Commission liaison, educators, hospital legal counsel, and others who are involved in ensuring compliance.
