CMS Hospital Improvement FINAL Rules (Webinar T6111) Wed, Dec 4, 2019 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Speaker: Sue Dill Calloway

Date/Time: Wednesday, December 4 / 10 a.m. - Noon

Course Overview: CMS has finalized 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, H&Ps, and restraint and seclusion. Most have an effective date of November 29, 2019 with two exceptions. The normal implementation date is 60 days but Critical Access Hospitals will have 6 months to implement an antibiotic stewardship program and 18 months to implement a QAPI program since their QAPI requirements were completely written. It will also require all hospitals to have an antibiotic stewardship program and what the program should include. Also a great part of this document included things that CMS has found to be problematic in hospitals that are already a requirement in the hospital CoPs. CMS also clarified a number of existing requirements and a number of federal regulations that are already final which makes this webinar an excellent resource.
