Did you know there were fifteen recent memos of importance to nursing in the recent past? Did you know there have been many changes in nursing chapter in the past two years including 2016 changes and proposed changes in 2017? The proposed changes are in the Hospital Improvement Act. Did you know that CMS has issued deficiency reports which includes which are the most problematic standards for hospitals?

Significant changes were made by CMS to blood transfusion, compounding, safe injection practices, IV medication administration, beyond use date (BUD) and implemented safe opioid standards. Hospitals are still facing issues on ways to comply with these complicated standards. There have been many changes in the past to this section which includes drug orders, self administration of medications, safe injection practices, compounding, IV medication, blood transfusion, verbal orders, plan of care, soft wrist restraints and restraint reporting, standing orders and timing of medications. Many changes to the final interpretive guidelines went into effect in the past two years. The final worksheets on QAPI, discharge planning and infection control, which should be on the radar screen of every department managers, has been issued by the CMS.

This session by expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD, is a must attend for any clinical nurse or nurse leader or person interested in ensuring compliance with the CMS hospital conditions of participation in nursing. There has been an increase in surveillance and scrutiny in recent times to ensure that every hospital is in compliance with the hospital CoPs. Don’t take chance and put your hospital’s reimbursement at stake.

Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement must follow the CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and it must be followed for all patients. This program will cover the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual. Facilities accredited by the Joint Commission, American Osteopathic Association, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must also follow these regulations.

This program will also reference other important sections that all nurses should be aware that are found outside the nursing services section. This section contains many problematic standards for hospitals including the nursing care plan standards and that an order is required for all medication especially if standing order or protocol used. This webinar will also discuss staffing, medications, three time frame for administering medications and educational requirements, along with changes in standing orders and protocols. Lastly, it will cover the CMS’ issue of deficiency reports so hospitals are aware of which are the problematic tag numbers.
