This program will discuss the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital and Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) requirements for dietary and food and nutrition services.

Learning Objectives:

– Describe that CMS has a section on food and nutrition services in the hospital condition of participation standards.
