Any hospital that accepts Medicare reimbursement must comply with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs). The patient rights section of the CMS CoPs manual has the highest number of deficiencies for hospitals. This program will discuss the CoPs Appendix A section on patient rights. Although the Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Appendix W does not have a similar section, CAHs must provide a safe environment for patients. Topics to be covered in this webinar include grievances, right to receive notice of patient rights, exercise of rights, informed consent, privacy, confidentially of medical records, safety, advance directives, interpreters, abuse and neglect, plan of care, visitation rules, support person rights, and staffing levels.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Identify that the CMS regulations regarding grievances includes the requirement to have a grievance committee.
- Recall that CMS has requirements for advance directives.
- Discuss the CMS requirement for providing patients and/or their representatives information on patient rights.
- Recite the various requirements for when a patient is placed into restraints and/or seclusion.
