Session four will explain the informed consent elements required by CMS; describe the requirements for history and physicals for CAH; discuss what must be contained in the operative report; discuss what the CAH must do to comply with the requirements for notification of the organ procurement (OPO) agency when a patient expires; recall that CMS has many patient rights that are afforded to patients in swing beds; and review that hospitals must have a visitation policy and patients must be informed.
This is session last of the four-part series. See previous dates for this September series on the AHA calendar or on link below.
