Recently there has been increased scrutiny and surveillance to make sure all hospitals are in compliance with the hospital Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs). Every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid must be in compliance with these regulations and interpretive guidelines. This program will cover the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual.

Ms.  Calloway will discuss the significant changes CMS has made to IV medication administration, blood transfusion, safe injection practices, compounding, beyond use date (BUD) and implemented safe opioid standards. This program will also reference other that nurses should be aware of such medication standards, verbal orders, history and physicals, visitation, restraint and seclusion and grievances, discharge planning standards, and privacy and confidentiality.
