Product Description

Unravel CMS Hospital Standing-Order Rules

Are you aware of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements on standing orders that all hospitals must follow? Did you know that there are four separate CMS hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) sections? If you aren’t fluent on these topics, you’re not alone: These have been confusing areas for hospitals and have generated a plethora of questions. Now you can get answers!

Join expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD as she gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to ensure your hospital is in compliance with CoP standards and the requirements related to standing orders. Learn the Joint Commission standards on standing orders and protocols, as well as the interpretive guidelines and regulations under CMS related to order sets, protocols, preprinted orders, and standing orders.

After attending this audio event, you will have a solid understanding of CoPs and standing-order requirements. You will have the resources you need to embark on your journey of developing protocols and standing orders. Additionally, this webinar will clear up your confusion on each of the four CoP sections and what each section requires your hospital to do.

If your hospital accepts Medicare or Medicaid patients, you can’t afford NOT to be compliant with these standards—your payments are on the line!
