CMS CoPs 2021 Series: Session 2

CMS CoPs 2021 Series: Session 2

Series Overview
This five-part webinar series will cover the entire CMS Hospital CoP manual. Hospitals have seen a significant increase in survey activity by CMS until COVID-19 hit. However, CMS is still conducting limited surveys, especially when there has been a complaint or indications of immediate jeopardy. This program will discuss the most problematic standards and how the hospital can do a gap analysis to assist in compliance with the CoPs.

Learning Objectives
• Discuss that CMS has restraint standards that hospitals must follow
• Describe that the patient has a right to file a grievance and the hospital must have a grievance
  policy and procedure in place
• Explain that interpreters should be provided for patients with limited English proficiency and this
  should be documented in the medical record
• Discuss that the term LIP (licensed independent practitioner) has been changed to LP (licensed
  practitioner) to allow PAs to order restraints

Target Audience: 
CEOs and COOs, CNOs, Nurses & Medical Staff, Chief Legal Officers, Quality Managers, Nurse Educators, Risk Managers, Compliance Officers, Chief of Health Information, Pharmacists, Social Workers, Discharge Planners, Patient Safety Officers, Outpatient Directors, Directors of Rehab, Infection Control, and Directors of Radiology
