CMS recently issued a deficiency report. It previously made 3 changes to the dietary guidelines for hospitals and rewrote all the dietary guidelines for critical access hospitals that went into effect April 1, 2015. Some hospitals are still working to ensure compliance. CMS will now permit the Medical Staff and Board to credential and privilege qualified dieticians and qualified nutritional specialists to order the patient’s diet. This includes therapeutic diet, supplemental feeding and enteral nutrition. CMS has already provided additional information about the C&P process for dieticians and this session will cover this issue in detail.
This session by expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway will discuss the CMS hospital conditions of participation requirements for dietary and food and nutrition services. It is an important part of the CMS survey and this area has received increased scrutiny of their standards especially in the area of Infection control. This session will cover the common deficiencies received by hospitals from CMS in this area. It will also cover the Joint Commission provision of care chapter standards related to dietary and the TJC dietary tracer information. Sue will also discuss the DNV Healthcare dietary standards during this session.
