Product Description

If a CMS Surveyor Showed Up Tomorrow, Would Your Hospital Be Prepared?

In 2019, your hospital can expect greater quality scrutiny from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), so don’t put your facility at risk for a negative survey experience. Get to know the CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) manual inside and out—and get set to greet the next CMS surveyor with confidence.

Join hospital compliance guru Sue Dill Calloway to gain an invaluable overview of the CMS survey process—including clues for how to keep current with emerging changes to agency guidelines. Calloway will reveal a sneak peek at proposed revisions to the CMS Hospital CoP manual for 2019, including the updated worksheets for infection control, performance improvement (PI), and discharge planning.

This instructive session will arm you and your staff with crucial and comprehensive knowledge about the CMS survey process, including how to comply with rules for CMS-required education, order sets, and standing orders. Calloway will offer guidance on the many recent revisions and coming changes to hospital protocols for medical record management, privacy and confidentiality, injection practices, infection control breaches, medication errors, deficiency memos, hospital board management, telemedicine, and more.
