Oct 05, 2022 , 01 : 00 PM EST |  2 Days Left


120 Minutes


This webinar covers the hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) that affect the emergency department and overall emergency services within a facility. Interpretive guidelines are in two separate sections of the hospital CoP manual – Appendix A for Acute hospitals starting at Tags A91 – 94 and then Tags A1100 – 1112. Regulations and guidelines are in one section of Appendix C for Critical Access Hospitals, beginning at Tags C 880 - C898.  EMTALA is in a separate section – Appendix V.

Any hospital that accepts Medicare must follow the CMS CoPs and all patients. This program will cover the initial section of the manual that discusses staffing requirements, provision of services both on and off-campus, required policies and procedures, training requirements, medical director requirements, and compliance with standards of care. EMTALA will be addressed briefly; EMTALA is a separate multiple webinar program. This program will also cover recent changes to the overall many that impact emergency services including requirements for restraint and seclusion, grievances, and protocols.

This program will provide education as to what hospital emergency departments need to do to prevent being out of compliance with the CMS hospital requirements.
