Preparing for Success During Accreditation and CMS Surveys
No matter where you are in your accreditation cycle, a survey team could arrive at your door any time. Don’t go into 2019 unprepared!
The Greeley Company’s regulatory compliance and quality experts hosted a free online learning seminar on December 6, 2018 covering the top 20 Joint Commission citations and the top 22 CMS citations in recent years to help you prepare for success in 2019. Greeley faculty shared common vulnerabilities that trigger 90-day CMS “terminations” or preliminary denial of Joint Commission (and other) accreditation.
Successful strategies for common pitfalls will be reviewed related to suicide screening and assessment (enhanced for 2019 with new Joint Commission requirements), ligature resistance in the behavioral health setting, sterilization and high-level disinfection of reusable equipment, restraint, EMTALA, and other areas of high vulnerability.
