Acute Care Hospital CoPs Part 5
This is part 5 of a 5-part series. This five-part webinar series will cover the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) manual, Appendix A. This series will discuss the most challenging standards within the CMS CoPs manual and will show how hospitals can do a gap analysis to assist in compliance. Every hospital that accepts payment for Medicare and Medicaid patients must comply with the CMS CoPs. The manual also has interpretive guidelines, which serve as the basis for determining hospital compliance, that must be followed for all patients treated in the hospital or hospital-owned departments. Although some changes from 2020 have pending interpretive guidelines and survey procedures, hospitals are still expected to comply with the regulations. This series will include a review of the 2020 changes and the 2023 updates. Facilities with deemed status accredited by the Joint Commission (TJC), HFAP, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must also follow the CMS CoPs regulations.
