There were multiple changes to the hospital nursing chapter of the conditions of participation (CoPs) in 2020. However, many of those changes are still awaiting interpretive guidelines and survey procedures. In late 2020, CMS made changes to the section in response to COVID-19 pandemic for “hospital at home” facilities.
This webinar will discuss plans of care, staffing, policy changes, when a RN is required in an outpatient department, documentation, supervision, nursing leadership, verbal orders, antibiotic stewardship program requirement and more.
CMS has issued deficiency reports which includes which are the most problematic standards for hospitals. The nursing services has been cited over 6,300 times according to the most recent report. This is a must attend program for any chief nursing officer, clinical nurse or nurse supervisor or person interested in ensuring compliance with the CMS hospital conditions of participation in nursing. This must attend program and will discuss the deficiencies and how hospitals can ensure compliance.
There are many changes in the past to this section include timing of medications, standing orders, soft wrist restraints and restraint reporting, plan of care, verbal orders, blood transfusions, IV medication, compounding, BUD, antibiotic stewardship program, safe injection practices, self-administration of medications and drug orders.
Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement must follow the CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and it must be followed for all patients. This program will cover the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual. Facilities accredited by the Joint Commission, Health Care Facility Accreditation Program, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must also follow these regulations.
This webinar will also reference other important sections that all nurses should be aware that are found outside the nursing services section such as the revised discharge planning standards, medication standards, revised history and physicals, visitation, restraint and seclusion and grievances, and privacy and confidentiality. CMS issued the privacy and confidentiality memo, safe injection practices memo, humidity memo, and insulin pen memo.
Please note: CMS has a separate CoP for critical access hospitals (CAHs). However, since the CAH nursing CoPs were rewritten in 2020, they are for the most part the same or a shorten version. Any differences are discussed.
Other important sections nurses should be aware of:
