Webinar: Boards and Medical Staff - Complying with the CMS Hospital CoPs
Wednesday, April 08, 2020, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital CoPs has a section on both board and medical staff. This includes information on credentialing and privileging requirements, implementing Medical Staff (MS) bylaws and rules and regulations, hospitals in systems, board responsibility for quality and safety, sharing a board in hospital systems, policy development, history and physicals, and more.

This program is timely because of the increase number of deficiencies received which are over 2,180. There are three significant changes that became effective November 29, 2019, to the CoPs under the transparency bill, discharge planning and hospital improvement rule which will be discussed. This includes changes to the history and physicals for healthy patients having outpatient procedures and changes to the autopsy rules. It also requires board’s involvement and responsibility if the hospital decides to do system wide QAPI or infection control. The board must also appoint the infection preventionist after approval of the Medical Executive Committee and nursing leadership.
