Did you know that the number one area of deficiencies in the CMS CoP is regarding restraints? CMS issued a memo summarizing all of the deficiencies against hospitals which is updated quarterly. This program by expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway will discuss the most problematic standards in the restraint section. If a CMS surveyor showed up at your hospital tomorrow would you be prepared? Does your staff understand all 50 pages of the CMS interpretive guidelines?
It has been made mandatory according to both CMS and Joint Commission that hospital staff need to be educated on restraint and seclusion interpretive guidelines. Meet these requirements with the help of this webinar. CMS has also made restraint training mandatory and it must be on-going so you can’t just provide training at orientation and forget about it. Did you know that CMS has ten pages of training requirements?
This webinar will also discuss the internal log requirements and what must be in the log for patients who die in one or two soft wrist restraints. You will know what needs to be documented in medical records, and learn the reporting requirements for patients who die in restraints and within 24 hours of being in a restraint. CMS has also issued interpretive guidelines for seclusions and restraint for hospitals and this program is going to help you simplify the 50 pages with interpretive guidelines. You will crosswalk to joint commission standards and will be able to avoid the restraint nightmares, taking the mystery out of confusing regulations.
It is mandatory for all hospitals to comply with the interpretive guidelines even if accredited by Joint Commission, AOA, CIHQ, or DNV Healthcare. Hospitals have to comply with the policies and procedures and physicians who write an order for restraints will have to be educated on the hospital’s policy.
