Pharmacy Conditions of Participation Webinar

Date: 12/6/2022, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This session will provide information about the recent changes in Medicare’s conditions of participation, which require hospitals to establish a formalized antibiotic stewardship program. This program also reviews the existing conditions of participation and problematic pharmacy standards. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) interpretive guidelines address medication management and pharmacy-related standards. Hospitals can look to these standards when CMS conducts a survey. Medication management also is a focus for The Joint Commission. Medication errors account for the largest number of medical errors in healthcare. They are also the most common reason for unnecessary hospital readmissions. For the first time, CMS mentions that nursing needs to be aware of the pharmacy standards. This includes medication errors, adverse events, drug incompatibilities, self‐administered medication and required medication policies.
