CMS Hospital CoPs: Medication Administration, Safe Opioid Use, IV and Blood Administration

Live Webinar | Sue Dill Calloway | From: Aug 06, 2019 - To: Dec 31, 2019

This webinar will cover the revised Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) standards on safe opioid use, IV medication and blood transfusion. This is the fifth time this section has been amended in the past few years, along with a recent amendment to nursing section 405 that addresses safe injection practices, compounding and beyond use date. The following are also covered: CDC opioid guidelines, Joint Commission final pain management guidelines, federal guidelines for opioid programs, the opioid epidemic, and required hospital policies and training. The CMS standards on the care of the patient receiving opioids also apply to critical access hospitals.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the CMS 32-page memo on medication administration and safe opioid use
  • Discuss how the medications must be administered within three different timeframes
  • Explain that CMS has required policies and education requirements on medication administration and safe opioid use
  • Discuss the CMS requirements that ensure nurses are competent when giving IV medications or blood transfusions
  • Identify the CDC-issued opioid prescribing guidelines.
