Why Should You Attend:
Currently, only 68% of hospitals have an antibiotic stewardship program. This is one of the many things that CMS is proposing to change. Also the Office of Civil Rights have found that many hospitals are not using interpreters at all times indicated. CMS is proposing to implement similar standards to make it clear when interpreters must be used for patients with limited English proficiency. OCR has found that 1 in 10 HIPAA complaints surround the patient access to medical records. They produced two important reference materials that many hospitals were not familiar with. CMS noted this in their proposed rules and have made provisions to improve patient access to medical records. In fact, there are many examples of where CMS feels hospitals and providers are not doing things which is why they have proposed so many changes that impact nursing, nursing plans of care, medical records, outpatient services and more. CMS also found that there is inadequate documentation of care provided to outpatients.
CMS has proposed some significant changes to the hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) that every hospital should know including critical access hospitals. This include changes to nursing, medical records, infection control, QAPI, patient rights, and restraint and seclusion. It will also require all hospitals to have an antibiotic stewardship program and what the program should include. It will include a prohibition on discrimination which must be given to patients in writing.
This session by expert speaker, Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD, discusses the proposed changes to the CMS Hospital Improvement Act, including nursing, QAPI, medical records, lab, restraint standards, discrimination, patient rights, and more.
