WEBINAR: CMS Hospital CoP Made Easy 2020 Part 5

About the Webinar

If a CMS surveyor showed up in your hospital tomorrow, would you be prepared? This five-part webinar series will cover the entire CMS Hospital CoP manual. It is a great way to educate everyone in your hospital on all the sections in the CMS hospital manual, especially ones that apply to their department.  Hospitals have seen a significant increase in survey activity by CMS. This program will discuss the most problematic standards. The program will cover how the hospital can do a gap analysis to assist in compliance with the CoPs.

This program will also include the 600 pages of final changes in 2020, including the final discharge planning standards and the Hospital Improvement Rule. This includes changes to history and physicals, system wide QAPI and infection control, autopsy, discharge planning, infection control, antibiotic stewardship, medical records, nursing, outpatient, the role of non-physicians in psychiatric hospitals and more. The ligature risk and prevention of suicide will be covered which is a hot area of compliance.
