CMS Hospital Restraint and Seclusion: Navigating the Most Problematic Standards and Proposed Changes

Restraint and seclusion continue to be a top concern with both the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Joint Commission as hospitals are commonly cited for noncompliance. Restraint policy is one of the most difficult to write and understand in healthcare today, yet is critical to successful compliance. Compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, RN, JD, will help simplify CMS’ 50-page interpretive guidelines and guide attendees through The Joint Commission standards in this comprehensive webinar.

Calloway will also discuss:

  • Requirements for an internal log;
  • Medical record documentation requirements; and
  • Reporting requirements for patients who die within 24 hours of being restrained.

Note: The Georgia Hospital Association is presenting this webinar in collaboration with IHA and other state hospital associations.

Healthcare organizations are adopting sophisticated approaches to executive compensation packages to better align business strategy, organizational performance and executive pay. These programs can result in a powerful connection between the executive team and the board’s vision by calibrating pay to performance, providing market-competitive yet reasonable compensation and managing overall compensation costs.
