Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement must follow the CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and it must be followed for all patients. This program will cover the nursing services section in the hospital CoP manual. Facilities accredited by the Joint Commission, Health Care Facility Accreditation Program, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must also follow these regulations.
This program will reference other important sections that all nurses should be aware of that are found outside the nursing services section such as medication standards, verbal orders, history and physicals, visitation, restraint and seclusion and grievances, discharge planning standards and privacy and confidentiality. CMS issued the privacy and confidentiality memo, safe injection practices memo, humidity memo, and insulin pen memo.
This section contains many problematic standards for hospitals including the nursing care plan standards and that an order is required for all medication especially if standing order or protocol used. Staffing, medications, a three-time frame for administering medications and educational requirements will be discussed along with changes standing orders and protocols. CMS starting issuing deficiency reports and this will be covered so hospitals are aware of which are the problematic tag numbers.
