CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) on Patient Rights' Standards: Keys to Ensuring Compliance
This program will cover, in detail, the CMS patient rights requirements which includes grievances, right to get notice of patient rights, exercise of rights, visitation, informed consent, privacy, confidentially of medical records, safety, advance directives, interpreters, abuse and neglect, infant security, plan of care, staffing levels, and over 50 pages of restraint standards.
This program will also discuss important CMS memos which include memos on confidentiality and privacy for hospitals. These are important especially since HIPAA has been revised and the increased penalties being levied against hospitals.
Finally, this session will review the crosswalk to the Joint Commission standard. Many hospitals are surprised at the number of regulations and the detail required complying with these problematic standards.
