Product Description

Pay Special Attention to Behavioral Health Patients’ Rights & Ligature Risks

Chances are your hospital is behind on its implementation of the latest restraint standards from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Same goes for many other patients-rights-related compliance topics addressed in the agency’s Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) manual. Time to get up to speed!

Join hospital compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway for this focus session on CMS guidelines for patient rights—especially restraint and seclusion, which yield a high number of deficiencies.

CMS has got hospitals under the microscope. Attend this instructive session to gain a thorough understanding of the manual’s requirements on patients’ right to privacy and safety, medical record confidentiality, grievances, interpreters, advance directives, and so much more. Plus, you’ll get the tools and information that you need to face the CoP changes for 2019.

Session Highlights

This program will teach you how to:

  • Avoid common deficiencies related to revised restraint/seclusion standards
  • Apply rules to minimize ligature risks
  • Properly address privacy, confidentiality, informed consent, and advance directives
  • Know your obligations to provide interpreters, accommodate patient advocates/representatives, and allow visitation
  • Sidestep hidden pitfalls related to patient abuse and neglect
  • Understand Medicare patients’ right to an Important Message (IM) Notice
  • Determine who has authorized access to patient medical records

Who Should Attend

This 5-session training program will benefit professionals who work in hospitals or hospital-owned provider departments, including: chief officers and department directors, directors of health information, quality managers, case managers, nurses & nurse educators, infection preventists, risk managers and compliance officers, Joint Commission liaisons and coordinators, legal counsel, consumer advocates, social workers, and others.

Following the live presentation, the instructor will conduct a Q&A period during which you may ask questions and solicit solutions for your unique situation.
