Start your year off right by exploring Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) with accreditation expert Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. This four-part webinar series will explore challenging standards of the CAH CoPs and will discuss practical compliance strategies for your organization. Be prepared the next time a surveyor arrives at your facility.

During this webinar, Dill Calloway will review Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) CAH CoP sections on radiology, contracted services, visitation, rehabilitation, medical records, surgical and anesthesia services, organ procurement, and long-term care services (i.e., swing beds).

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the informed consent elements required by CMS.
  • Describe the requirements for history and physicals for CAHs.
  • List what must be contained in the operative report.
  • Discuss what CAHs must do to comply with the requirements for notification of the organ procurement (OPO) agency when a patient expires.
  • Discuss the CMS patient rights afforded to patients in swing beds.
  • Describe how patients must be informed about the hospital visitation policy.
