Acute Care Hospital Conditions of Participation – Webinar Series – Part 5

February 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

Every hospital that accepts payment for Medicare and Medicaid patients must comply with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Conditions of Participation. The manual has interpretive guidelines that must be followed for all patients treated in the hospital or hospital owned departments. Facilities accredited by the Joint Commission (TJC), HFAP, CIHQ, and DNV GL Healthcare with Deemed Status must follow these regulations.

 This five-part webinar series will cover the entire CMS Hospital CoP manual for acute hospitals. This program will discuss the most problematic standards and how the hospital can do a gap analysis to assist in compliance with the CoPs.

This program will cover the over 500 pages of the State Operations Manual for Acute hospitals.  Each section of the manual will be discussed including those which had recent updates and still-pending Interpretive Guidelines.

The interpretive guidelines serve as the basis for determining hospital compliance and there have been many changes in the recent years. There have been significant changes and many important survey memos issued also. CMS issued the final surveyor worksheets for assessing compliance with the QAPI, infection control and discharge planning standards. The worksheets are used by State and Federal surveyors on all survey activities in hospitals when assessing compliance.
