Decode Overhauled Hospital CoPs for Radiology & Nuclear Medicine


If a surveyor showed up at your hospital tomorrow, would you be able to demonstrate compliance with the 41 pages of changes to hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) for radiology and nuclear medicine? If the answer is “no,” you’re not alone. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rewrote all the hospital CoPs on radiology, and many hospitals are still struggling to comply.

Struggle no longer. Find out what you need to know about significant changes to radiology and nuclear medicine standards in this live webinar presented by expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. Understand CMS’ updates to MRI requirements, including newly-mandated policies and protocols, as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) crusade to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure.

After attending this session, you will have a solid understanding of the revised hospital CoPs for radiology and nuclear medicine—and, specifically, what steps CMS expects you to take to comply. You will have the tools and knowledge you need to implement required safety precautions to reduce radiation exposure and abide by new MRI requirements.
