Product Description

Demystify ALARA—and Other Radiology/Nuclear Medicine Standards of Care


Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for Medicare reimbursement have been in place since 2015—yet many hospitals still struggle to comply, specifically with rules for radiology. Plus, the growing field of teleradiology has further muddled the already-complex requirements.

It is possible to increase patient safety while decreasing your hospital’s chances of receiving a survey deficiency: In this webinar, Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD shows you how.

Calloway will clarify the web of CoP requirements and interpretive guidelines governing radiology and nuclear medicine. And she’ll provide a compliance roadmap to help you meet standards of practice, ward off deficiencies, and lower radiation exposure risks for patients and staff.

After attending, you’ll be well equipped to identify at-risk patients and pinpoint problems with the quality and safety of your radiology services—including the use of MRI, CT scans, radiation therapy, ultrasound, DEXA scans, and more. You’ll also be able to implement with certainty the protocols your hospital needs to meet CMS (and FDA) requirements.

Patient exposure to radiation has doubled in the last 20 years. Don’t get caught in the crosshairs of CMS’s effort to confront that problem head on.

Session Highlights

In this training course you will learn to:

  • Locate the current CMS CoP manual and interpret its guidelines
  • Evaluate your radiology/nuclear medicine services against standards of care
  • Train staff in the risks and prevention of ionizing radiation exposure
  • Steer clear of CoP deficiencies
  • Use the ALARA principle to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure
  • Implement safety precautions to prevent dangerous radiation hazards
  • Establish a protocol for periodic equipment inspection and calibration

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for radiology and nuclear medicine providers and staff, risk management and compliance personnel, hospital legal counsel and executive teams, and regulatory affairs staff.

Following the live presentation, the instructor will conduct a Q&A period during which you may ask questions and solicit solutions for your unique situation.
