Nursing CMS CoP Standards for Hospitals and Proposed Changes 2021 Webinar

Date: 3/30/2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made multiple changes to the hospital nursing chapter of the conditions of participation (CoPs), and further changes are anticipated this year. Specifically, the nursing CoPs section has been altered in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for “hospital at home” facilities. There have been over eighteen CMS survey memos of importance issued relating to nursing over the past year.
 
The final changes to the nursing CoPs were indicated in the Hospital Improvement Rule. This webinar will discuss the modifications including 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 include what are considered the most problematic standards for hospitals. 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.
