CMS Restraint and Seclusion
Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

Did you know that the number one area of deficiencies in the CMS CoP is regarding restraints? CMS issued a memo summarizing all of the deficiencies against hospitals which is updated quarterly. This program will discuss the most problematic standards in the restraint section.  If a CMS surveyor showed up at your hospital tomorrow would you be prepared? Does your staff understand all 50 pages of the CMS interpretive guidelines?  

This program will discuss the requirements for an internal log and what must be in the log for patients who die in one or two soft wrist restraints. It will include what must be documented in the medical record also. It will also discuss the new electronic reporting requirements for patients who die in restraints and within 24 hours of being in a restraint.

CMS has issued interpretive guidelines on restraint and seclusions for hospitals. This program will simplify and take the mystery out of those 50-page restraint and seclusion interpretive guidelines. It will provide a crosswalk to the Joint Commission standards. Avoid the restraint nightmare now and let us take the mystery out of these confusing regulations by attending this program.
