This webinar will discuss the CMS hospital conditions of participation requirements for dietary and food and nutrition services. It is an important part of the CMS survey as this area has received increased scrutiny of their standards especially in the area of infection control.
Following a survey, CMS prepares a list of deficiencies or citations. This session will cover the common deficiencies received by hospitals from CMS in this area.
CMS now permits Medical Staff and Boards to credential and privilege qualified dieticians and qualified nutritional specialists to order the patient’s diet. This includes therapeutic diet, supplemental feeding, and enteral nutrition. This is also allowed for CAHs including swing beds. CMS has provided additional information about the C&P process for dieticians and this issue will be discussed in detail.
This webinar will also cover the Joint Commission Provision of Care Chapter Standards related to dietary and the TJC dietary tracer information. The tracer is used to assess and determine the degree of compliance with standards and elements of performance related to nutrition care. The tracer used through dietetic and food services covers some of the same issues discussed during the CMS survey.
