If there is one webinar your hospital should listen to this year, it would be this one. If a surveyor showed up at your door tomorrow for a validation survey, would you be prepared? The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has finalized the surveyor worksheet for assessing compliance with the infection control Conditions of Participation (CoPs). The worksheets are used by state and federal surveyors on all survey activates when assessing compliance with the infection control standards.
Citation instructions are provided on the infection control worksheet. Surveyors will follow standard procedures when non-compliance is identified. CMS is now publishing the infection control deficiencies, and this will be discussed along with actual information on why hospitals were found to be out of compliance. Although the worksheet is not being used per se at Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), it is highly recommended that all CAHs should listen to this webinar since the standards are the same and this is an excellent self-assessment tool.
As a result of this presentation, participants will be able to:
