Webinar: CMS Hospital Improvement Final Rules
CMS has finalized some significant changes to the hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) that every hospital should know, including critical access hospitals. It was 393 pages long and combined three laws into one. This includes changes to nursing, medical records, infection control, QAPI, patient rights, H&Ps, and restraint and seclusion. Effective date was November 29, 2019. However Critical Access Hospitals have until end of March 2021 to implement a QAPI program since their QAPI requirements were completely written.
It will also require all hospitals to have an antibiotic stewardship program and what the program should include. The CDC revised the core elements in November of 2019. Also a great part of this document included things that CMS has found to be problematic in hospitals that are already a requirement in the hospital CoPs. CMS also clarified a number of existing requirements and a number of federal regulations that are already final which makes this webinar an excellent resource.
