Product Description

Don't let the new HAC mandates suck your hospital's coffers dry.

Prepare for even more scrutiny from CMS on "Never Events" and Hospital Acquired Conditions (HACs).

In light of the feds' tough stance on surgical site infections, decubitus ulcers and medical errors, you need to stay up-to-date on the tightening requirements more than ever before. Join expert speaker, Jillian Harrington, for this information-packed audio session, where she'll reveal precisely what you and your hospital staff must do to stay compliant, as well as to avoid HACs and Never Events in your facility.
