Product Description

Get to Know a New Discharge Planning Worksheet

Under the hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has a plethora of rules on infection control. And chances are, you’re missing the mark on at least one. And that’s not the only compliance area where hospitals are failing to meet surveyors’ increasingly eagle-eyed scrutiny.

Learn to comply with the 2019 proposed changes to CoP requirements with help from hospital compliance guru Sue Dill Calloway. In this information-packed session, she’ll pay particular attention to new requirements for infection control and outpatient services. But she’ll also cover key compliance topics related to discharge planning, organ/tissue procurement, surgical & anesthesia services, emergency services, and rehab & respiratory services.

You’ll walk away with a concrete understanding of your hospital’s obligations to prevent infection, use the new discharge planning worksheet, create operative reports, and integrate policies into the hospital QAPI. Don’t miss this chance to gain the insight you need to tackle 2019 rule changes and fine-tune your hospital policies for a successful year.

This program will teach you how to properly and compliantly:

  • Use the CMS-finalized discharge planning worksheet
  • Use the final infection-control worksheet and safe injection practices
  • Refer patients to home health and long-term care—and document the referral
  • Train staff in hospital policy on organ, tissue, and eye donation
  • Document post-anesthesia assessments in the medical record
  • Prepare for proposed 2019 changes for outpatient services
  • Follow ER standards of practice—and EMTALA
  • Set the scope of your rehab & respiratory services
