Did you know that the largest number of deficiencies for hospitals’ noncompliance with the Conditions of Participation (CoP) manual is in the area of patient rights? With more than 7,000 deficiencies in patient rights, hospitals have suffered the most mistakes regarding restraints and seclusion, followed by care in a safe setting, grievances, privacy, advance directives, confidentiality, admission status notification, and visitation and consent.
Learn how your hospital can avoid getting into hot water for these same patient rights deficiencies in this information-packed webinar by regulatory compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. Discover the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) requirements for patient rights, which include informed consent, privacy, confidentiality of medical records, safety, advance directives, interpreters, abuse and neglect, plan of care, staffing levels, and much more.
After attending this webinar, you will have an in-depth understanding of all the patient rights requirements, as well as the new detailed section that CMS added in 2018 on ligature risks and the requirements for caring for suicidal patients. You’ll walk away with all the tools and knowledge you need to comply with the CMS CoPs and the crosswalk to the Joint Commission standard. Learn about the requirement to have a grievance committee and CMS’ requirements for advance directives, two of the mandates that hospitals too-often overlook.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover:
