CMS Nursing Conditions of Participation for Hospitals: 2018 Update

Return to Calendar

February 15, 2018
9 a.m.

Recently, there has been increased scrutiny and surveillance to make sure all hospitals are in compliance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Conditions of Participation. Every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid must be in compliance with these regulations and interpretive guidelines.

This program will cover the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual. Discussions will include the significant changes CMS has made to IV medication administration, blood transfusion, safe injection practices, compounding, beyond use date and implemented safe opioid standards. This program also will reference other sections that nurses should be aware of, including medication standards, verbal orders, history and physicals, visitation, restraint and seclusion, grievances, discharge planning standards, and privacy and confidentiality.
