KHA Conditions of Participation Conference
Tuesday, July 26, 2022, 8:00 AM to Thursday, July 28, 2022, 5:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

All hospitals that accept payment for Medicare and Medicaid patients must comply with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services  (CMS) Conditions of Participation. The Conditions of Participation Manual has interpretive guidelines that must be followed for all patients treated in the hospital or hospital owned departments. Facility accredited by the Joint Commis­sion (TJC), HFAP, CIHQ and DNV Healthcare must follow these regulations.

This three-day conference will cover the entire CMS and Critical Access Hospital (CAH) CoP manual. This program is a great way to educate your hospital staff on each section of the manual, especially ones that apply to their respective departments. This program will include the 600 pages of final changes in 2020 including the final discharge planning standards and the Hos­pital Improvement Rule. The changes include changes to history and physicals, system wide QAPI and infection control, autopsy, discharge planning, nursing, outpatient, the role of non-physicians in psychiatric hospitals and more. The ligature risk and prevention of suicide will also be covered as it is a vital area of compliance. This complete series will further help a Critical Access Hospital comply with problem areas including nursing care plans, necessary policies and procedures, medication management, and emergency preparedness.

The interpretive guidelines serve as a basis for determining hospital compliance and there have been many changes in recent years. In addition to significant changes and a discussion on the important survey memos that have been issued, there will be worksheets available to be used as self-assessment tools for hospitals.
