CMS Radiology & Nuclear Medicine Hospital CoPs

CMS Radiology & Nuclear Medicine Hospital CoPs

Patient exposure to radiation has doubled in 20 years, with patients potentially undergoing multiple studies and scans over their lifetime. In response, the FDA has undertaken an initiative to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure from medical imaging using the principle of “As Low As Reasonably Achievable,” (ALARA). Following this principle, CMS requirements discusses safety precautions a hospital should do to decrease radiation exposure.

This program will cover all the hospital radiology and nuclear medicine standards requires for hospitals from CMS, including 41 pages of changes that were enacted in 2015. Every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid must be in compliance with these regulations and interpretive guidelines.

Target Audience:
Radiology Department Directors, Radiology Medical Directors, Radiology Staff, Patient Safety Officers, Risk Managers, Compliance Officers, Regulatory Affairs Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Risk Management, CMOs, Emergency Department Physicians, Clinic Physicians, Physicists, ED Staff, CNOs, Hospital Legal Counsel or any person in charge to ensure compliance with CMS guidelines on radiology and nuclear medicine
